Surface Decoration 05

Getting an appealing decoration to the surface of the fabrics that you use in your craft project will really make it stand out. There are lots of different ways to get a decorative pattern. You can use our wonderful wooden blocks to create a unique pattern, or perhaps you could try just painting directly onto the fabric, or maybe blend and merge fabrics to create your decoration.

Click on the picture below to see Marilyn Pipe use Lutradur to create a unique surface decoration.
