VIDEO TUTORIAL - HOW TO USE FANTASY FILM

Now this is new territory for me, a VIDEO tutorial so be gentle (and honest!) with me lol!
Having recently got some fantasy film I realised that I actually had this stuff a long time ago but didn't know what it was for or how to use it as it didn't come with instructions back then so if you have some and aree a bit unsure as to how to use it then here's a couple of quick video tutorials on making fairy wings and making 3d butterflies.


MAKING FAIRY WINGS WITH FANTASY FILM




MAKING 3D BUTTERFLIES WITH FANTASY FILM


Just a couple of further notes, if you use a domestic iron set the heat on low and work your way up. I set my encaustic iron to between the low and high settings and this works fine but a domestic iron will probably be hotter so experiment and start low.
Use ink that will dry on non porous surfaces such as stazon, I've used brilliance as I couldnt find my stazon (now found!)
You can use several strips of fantasy film, I do 2 strips as I like things delicate but you can make some fab embellishments using 4 or more sheets.
You can colour fantasy film with copics and promarkers, particularly if you have an airbrush system. You can also add stickles, bling almost anything :)

Hi Vix, just doing a bit of catch up

This is a fab tutorial, it's nice to hear you in the flesh...feel like I know you better now.

I have load's of FF stuck in a draw, you have inspired me to fish it out, thats my kind of ironing too, I loath real ironing, tend to put thing through the drier so I can just hang them up after...lol

Great Tut...fab job!!!
