I love playing with Angelina fiber. It comes in two basic forms,
in Jelly bean size bites for sampling
and sheets of film
These are great for scrapbooks, art quilts , landscape quilts like this one by Linda Schmidt,
and anything that needs glitz like this fabulous vest from Wildonion.
I particularly like to inset little mosaic bits into layers of Angelina
and add textures to multiple layers bonded together
- Will adhere only to itself with heat and pressure (but will melt).
- Use appliqué sheets gloss side (or paper towel – light texture).
- Dry iron on silk setting.
- Iron a few seconds depending on colour, type and density.
- Picks up texture easily.
- Cool before pulling off protector sheets.
Straight cut: softer, 15 Denier (width of cut)
Crimped (Tinzl, Cryastallina) 58 Denier, jagged edge,
-Wider and SHINIER
-More intense colour
MIX TOGETHER for medium shine
Film: Textiva, Fantasy Film
Hot Fix and non-bondable
Washable, Dryable, dry cleanable (after stitching)
- Teflon appliqué sheet
- Wunderunder or steam a seam
- Paper towel
- Sponge or other stamps
- Iron or appliqué iron
- Tapered chopstick( for wrapping beads and moving around the fibers )
I have assembled many ideas on the Satin Moon Web site that we tried out at our FAE art quilters group. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Please send e-photos of your Angelina experiments and creations.
