Today I taught my ABC’s of Embellishment again. One product I showed was “Texture Magic” . Last night I did a few experiments with it. First, below show a simple grid quilted piece from the back side. The white material is the Texture Magic. It feels like a slippery light-weight fabric similar to what my tent is made out of.
I tried a second, free-motion quilted design too.Both designs, I did one with batting between the fabric & TM, & one without batting.
Then you apply steam, without touching it with your iron.
LOTS of steam! Superior threads sells a special steamer for this. I don’t think a standard iron has enough steam.
Below is the original before it’s steamed on the left. In the middle is the grid-quilted design with the batting after steam. The far right is grid quilted without batting after steam. You can click on the pictures to see better.
The next picture is the free-motion design with circles & squiggles.
Same order: far left-before steam; middle with batting; right no batting.
We embossed directly on fabric, we did some foiling, & played with Angelina sheets, & fibers.
Natalie had fun with her fabric.
