Bonding Angelina Fibers

This picture shows a pile of angelina fibers, approximately 1/2" thick, ready to be fused together, using heat. There are some angelina fibers called "flash" that do not bond together, however, if you purchased some of these, mix them up with the bondable fibers to incorporate them.



This is what the angelina fibers look like after it they been pressed with a hot iron..if you heat these fibers for too long, they will lose their shine, so when you are applying the heat, place a piece of parchment paper over the fiber covered stamp and press firmly on the iron for 15-20 seconds and remove the heat.


Here is the almost finished picture frame I created using the pressed angelina fibers...it's waiting for a picture of my GD's first birthday party, with her wearing her "Princess Tiara"

I have never used Angelina Fibres, but the effect you created is gorgeous, I would be too scared to use it I think, probably end up burning down my house...
