Laser cutting My Own Sequins. - LO1, LO4

January 8, 2018

I have been creating my own sequins using the laser cutter.  I have created large sequins by cutting out shapes in 1mm acrylic.  These are quite large but I really like the exaggerated size that they have once sewn on.   I have then used foil to add some texture and colour to them.  The foil fuses onto the acrylic meaning I don't have to put glue on.  Though this only creates a speckled effect on the sequin rather than a full coverage of foil.  I like this though it makes it a bit foiled but not to much. This is something that I will really like to experiment with in the next unit.  I think combining my print with mixed media and some stitch would really make it unique.  I may try smaller sequins on my smaller prints as I think this may be a bit big for this size fabric but would be excellent for my larger scale work so I will go on to experiment with size and shape.
