Hot Stuff....but no Parental Advisory required
I've been playing with my hot tool (no, not THAT sort of tool! Grubbyyyyyy!). I've burned a stencil of my taniwha design (taniwha are mythical Maori monsters - however, I should mention that our national roading authority, Transit NZ, had to divert the building of a highway, or pay reparation, or something, NOT VERY LONG AGO...because the road was going through an area with a taniwha in it). Hmmmm......interestingly, there's no accepted form for a taniwha - if you Google it, you'll see all sorts of different designs. This is one that I like.
Unfortunately, my stencil plastic prefers to be cut with a knife rather than burnt, so it's not a complete success as the stencil has bumpy edges where the plastic's melted. It's rather fun burning things, though!
And here's something else hot - the latest edition of Textile, the magazine of the Australian Textile Fibre Forum. This mag is LUSCIOUS!
