Lutradur Print Collage
Dyed cheesecloth is pressed into acrylic paint before the paint dries. Next a collage of materials that includes; dye for the burlap, digital print on lutradur and metal beads is put together. The lutradur print is distorted with an embossing heat tool. Once you heat the lutradur too much it can be ruined, so just do short time periods with the heat. After the lutradur is altered and the burlap dyed, the materials are put together by sewing the beads to the layers that secure the surfaces. I used small amounts of gel media to adhere the collage to the book pages.
