Our meeting in July was FME on dissolvables to create a lacy 3D piece of art. Carol showed us some great examples of her work and demonstrated the process. There was much sharing of techniques and experiences with the different types of dissolvables that can be purchased at various suppliers, we were especially interested in the ‘sticky’ dissolvable Carol demonstrated.

Carol’s samples:
