This original technique utilizes fusible web to transfer your original painted image to Organza. Using metallic acrylic textile paints, such as Jacquard Lumiere, (as an example), and various mark making tools, you will be able to create a completely new and unique form of art quilt. This is basically a mono print technique although this process is unlike any other printing process, it is not a reverse process…what you see is what you get.
