Printable Acetate Review

Another product review by Sam at Workshop on the Web this time on the Printable Acetate.

"My original plan for these sheets was to use them for my review of Jacquard SolarFast (this review was posted onto the Members’ Facebook page and WoW Blog over the summer). The printed
acetate didn’t work too well for that process (you really need to use the SolarFast film), which left me with some printed designs that I really liked but wanted to find a use for. This particular sheet was made up of a blend in Photoshop of a tree scene and a case of birds from the Natural History Museum in New York. It created a layered image where trees and branches were visible but was a bit flat. I printed it out in colour onto cotton and the same image again onto the printable acetate with an
inkjet printer.  Both pieces were then cut into strips (the cotton lengthways and the acetate widthways) and woven together in part. This was later enhanced by stitch."



"The acetate printed clearly and easily and once the ink was dry, the image was stable. It can be stitched through both on machine and by hand."
