Using the Big P.
The outcome of yesterday's experiments.
I don't like the plastic look of undiluted Paverpol on silk - ugh - but it did maintain the fine shibori gathers of the previously gathered and dyed silk, but needed fairly constant attention over a 1.5 hour period, including retying with thread.
I do like the way it can support the split quilt wadding without filling in the holes, visually you don't see any 'paint/glue' there and I can still stitch into it, but not everywhere - as some areas are too dense and hard to get the needle through.
Today I have continued experimenting.
I need an air gun!
