Invitatia lui Beth (3). Ecology and Art

Acesta este al treilea articol invitat, postat ieri pe blogul lui Beth.
This is the third guest post on the Beth blog,

The world is full of plastic in all forms. Daily we collect plastic bags, plastic bottles, packaging, etc. Plastic bags are everywhere, we get to the supermarket or at the market, then we used to throw them in the trash. What will happen in time with these materials that are not biodegradable? It is a problem that will be difficult to solve. Finally, over the years, the Earth will be "infected" with such non-biodegradable materials that will intoxicate.
I thought recycle them and use them for artistic purposes, ie to create a different type of material, even very interesting, which include him in my artistic work.

Proceed as follows: pieces of plastic, cut the plastic bags, are placed in several layers (4-5 layers depending on their thickness) between two sheets of parchment paper and iron with ironing. It is preferable to work in an airy, because you never know what substances may be encountered, although I have not found it yet.

The result is a very interesting material, textures unpredictable, depending on the nature of the plastic material and heat treatment mode.
If the plastic is too thin, it result and some "tearing" or holes.

Then the fused plastics can be painted with acrylic ...
   Can be stitched…
Here, I sewed some leaves then I painted with acrylics...

Here I did a combination of plastic with textile and some gold metallic foil. I used machine free motion to do a drawing.

Here, I mixed fused plastics with metallic foil and some stitches…

Pay attention !!! any ironing can affect the plastic material and can damage what you did before. After painting or sewing is better not to use the iron!!!

In the last photo is the rezultat of this mistake. The sewed plastic, as you saw in the picture above, was ironed over and damaged ... but I solved fault ... I added some metallic foil under it .

And finally, a CD wrapped with a fused, painted, stitched plastic …a small painting.
