Painting on Fusible Web...

Painting Fusible Web...

Oh, so much FUN!

The Permission 2 Play instructors gathered 

together to do some class prep...

Painting Fusible Web

The acrylic paint is watered down a bit...

You want a watery consistency.

Paint it directly onto the fusible web...

glue side up...

paper side down

The paper becomes wet and begins

to buckle and creates air pockets...yummy!

Close Up View.....Air Pockets

Allow the painted fusible web to dry

Once can do so much with this stuff:

You can tear it before you apply 

it to a substrate...

You can directly iron it to paper or fabric or ???

Once it cools off...

you peel off the backing paper

Look at all that yummy texture

In class, the P2P students will be creating

their own painted fusible web...

and use it to embellish note cards.

  1. I have done this technique and used in my work. It is fun and you all got some beautiful results!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Well, who would have ever thought of that? I always enjoy what you do with your painting!

  3. Thank you for sharing this technique with us. I love this idea and I can't wait to try it.

  4. This looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing so many good ideas.

  5. This looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing so many interesting ideas.

  6. LuAnn when you fuse the painted fusible web to a cotton fabric, does it have a stiff feeling to the fabric? Does it feel tacky?

    1. Hi Daryl, No, there really isn't a stiff feel and no it is not tacky whatsoever. You can easily quilt through it if you like. There are so many surface design possibilities with this technique. Be sure you paint is thinned down with water. Paint a piece and play with it.

  7. Hi everyone, I haven't been receiving any blogger comments for several months now. I thought everyone was having a fun and busy summer and wasn't reading the blog.....just today I discovered lots and lots of blogger comments waiting for my moderation. Not sure how that happened? I will try and respond to any questions you had....which may take me awhile to get through several months of comments, but I will peck away at it a little each day. Sorry for the lack of communication on my part. Happy to see all of the comments waiting for me. My Best To You, LuAnn Kessi in Western Oregon

    1. Hi I'm just wondering where to get the fusible web, is it just like the iron on paper you can fuse fabric together with?

    2. Yes, fusible web has paper on one side, sometimes on both sides depending on the brand your purchase. It is basically a sheet of glue. Be sure to water down your paint, that is what makes the paper wrinkle up and make all those cool textures.
      Have FUN!

    3. Hello LuAnn, do you have any brand of fusible web to recommend? I am new to this and there is many different kind on the market. Thank you in advance!

  8. LuAnn, what happens when you iron fabric that has the painted fusible on it?? I've only used the fusible that allows me to fuse one fabric to there any other kind? The stuff with paper on one side. I don't know how I missed this post, but with your yearly recap, I found it!! This would be an awesome way to get fabric the way you want it for a wall hanging...not sure I would use it on a quilt that would be washed!!

  9. Always place a piece of parchment paper over the painted fusible when pressing it with an iron. Painted fusible is for art quilts that are displayed on the wall, it is not washable.


  10. I have been using this method for years in my embroidery in different ways. It is amazing the different effects and things you can do with this.

    1. Yes, you never know what you are going to get!


  11. Wow... Ive just run off and painted my first piece of fusible - Its puckering up nicely. Just waiting for it to dry. Thank you so much for sharing this tip. You rock
