Our May session of FOG started off as usual with our warm up collage exercise - materials supplied and only a 1/2 hour to complete it. This month we created collages based upon the design principle of Scale and Proportion.
Next we moved on to using our heat guns to melt and distress Tyvek®, Tyvek® fabric, chip bags that had foil linings, Evolon, Organza, Lutradur (a spunbond web material manufactured by Pellon), other spunbond fabrics and various miscellaneous materials people brought to try. Some of us were very meticulous in making notes on their results, while others of us just winged it and trusted their memories. We even had some Tyvek® beads being made, although we have posted on these previously when we did our bead making day last year.

As you will see there were lots of marvellous results. It was a wonderful day, and the weather co-operated so that we could do our heating outside....no fear of causing the fire/smoke alarm to go off. We have done that a few too many times!!
