I’ve just recently received a book from the talented UK fiber artist Marion Marnett. It is about a product called Lutradur .
It seems relatively unknown here in the states, certainly seems to be used infrequently. In any case, I’ve not heard about it, until reading Marion’s Face Book page .https://www.facebook.com/marion.barnett]. She is enthusiastic and that enthusiasm is catchy. Marion uses it extensively in much of her beautiful work. The fact that she’s written a whole book about it, leads me to believe this is a great product. She has stirred my curiosity. I thought it might interest you as well.
Marion’s book’s is entitled ” Lovely Lutradur” by Marion Barnett & Dijanne Cevaal. In her book she explains what it is, its properties & it’s application. She has included projects and a gallery, which give examples of what this product can add to your work.
If you are already familiar with Lutradur [hence providing me an example of the value of thorough research, driving home this lesson,” to avoid embarrassment, check the facts thoroughly” ]. share your experience with us please.
I’m dying to try it in myself. I’ll update you on my results. In the meantime, check out the interview I did with Marion back in November http://asianartandquilts.com/2012/11/06/textile-art-that-doesnt-follow-the-rules-meet-artist-marion-barnett/
