Alphabet

This time the picture is of the H. For this character I decided to work with heatable foam. The foam is the thin type of foam you find at the children's department at JoAnn's. I cut it into the shape of the H. Next step was to use my heatgun on it - in front of an open window as the fumes are definately NOT healthy. When the foam was warm I pressed a textured button in it. This process was repeated several times. After that I painted the foam with Golden acrylic paints and stitched it onto the black background fabric.

that's a good idea. I have tons of those foam shapes knocking around, but they are kind of boring - texturing them, though, that would be fun.
