I've just finished another curtain piece, so I thought I'd post a couple of work in progress pics.
I'm not sure how I managed to do the other ones without a mask. I make the holes in the paper with a soldering iron. The fumes aren't that bad but my head is about 8 inches from the paper. After a very short while on this, my nose was streaming an my eyelids were a bit crispy! I ran out and bought this mask.
The less enjoyable bit is picking out the all extraneous tiddly bits which weld themselves to the paper. I do it in front of the telly. Its both painstaking and boring, but worth it to get to the moment when I can cut it away from the template.
Its framed and ready so will be on the Artwork page soon.
