Repurposed Design

I discovered a new medium awhile back that I’ve found to be a versatile collage material when fused between wax paper using a hot iron…This new to me medium is the common plastic bag that comes with anything purchased. When fused between layers of wax paper it can be drawn on with sharpie, painted with acrylic, and sewn by hand or with a sewing machine. I’ve done all of this in the three images attached below. One of the things I like best about this medium is the translucency and ability to build up texture by twisting the plastic before fusing. The possibilities are endless!
