1. Lay out your cling (saran) wrap over top of some baking paper to protect the ironing surface. My wrap is red, courtesy of our lovely SueB.
2. Place bits and pieces of fabrics on the top of wrap so the surface is covered, and they overlap each other - doesn't matter if there's gaps here and there - that can be rectified in the next layer. I use mainly synthetic fabrics, but throw in some cotton/silk too. In this sample I have used a lot of netting and organza.
3. Turn your iron on to get hot - I use the hottest setting and my very oldest iron. See where I have taped it back together after I dropped it.....
4. Place another layer of cling wrap over the top, then some baking paper over that - then iron. Just keep an eye on how the layers are adhering - depends on how hot your iron gets. You only want it all to adhere. Doesn't matter if you get holey bits, that can be nice, or can be fixed up in the next layer.
5. Grab some more fabric, or threads or whatever you think might be nice, and start laying on the next layer. I used similar fabric as before, and if any bits needed toning down, added some sheer organza over the top of these. I also added some silk throwsters waste to give it some texture.
6. Place another piece of cling wrap over the top, cover with baking paper and iron again. Just keep ironing until you have it how you like. This is where you decide if you want another layer or not. With this piece I have just left it at 2 layers. I also turned it over and ironed the bottom too - just keep an eye on it when ironing.....
This is my finished piece!!!
