This little abstract features Tyvek, a paper-like product made by Dupont. In the building industry, it is used to wrap foundations for a vapor barrier. It has many other uses because of it's strength and light weight. FedEx uses large envelopes made of Tyvek for shipping.
The cool thing about using Tyvek for artistic purposes is the unusual transformation that takes place when you apply heat from an iron to the paper/fabric. It shrinks and bubbles and melts, leaving you with a very unusual surface. I usually paint the paper before I shrink it. That adds to an element of unpredictablility that I love.
I also used copper tacks and copper wire on this one. SOLD
