Remember I was in a fusing things mood? Well I found a piece of bubble-wrap painted it (both sides) with watery acrylics, drizzled one side with Lumiere metallic paints, which I smudged about with my fingers, and dried it with the hairdryer, which is a permanent fixture in the studio. Yes, actually I do dry my hair in there too!

If you notice I'm still not getting the image positioning right!
Let it cool, take it off the needle and thread some recycled sari ribbon through with a large safety pin to make a bangle.
Of course it does look a bit like scrunched up sweet papers but with a bit more thought on colours and a little less metallic paint it makes a cheap, handy substitute for Tyvek when you either haven't got any or can't remember where you put it! There must be more ways to incorporate it into your textile pieces too as it's also soft enough to stitch.
