Stitching on plastics
I've been experimenting with some old samples from last year. These are plastics that I decided not to do anything further with. I wanted something to stitch a double helix onto, as a sample for something else I'm working on, and pulled out a sheet of two colours of gift wrap cellophane, fused together with some clear plastic. I didn't like working with fusing plastic, the fumes even with a respirator on myself are still in the air polluting it; but I kept the samples I made and the colours attracted me for this. I used several different colour threads including metallics, to clearly define a double helix. Not the centre part, just the outlines.
