Wondering Wednesday : Is Lutradur Fusible?
In a word, no...or at least, not by itself. I use lutradur in combination with fusibles such as Bondaweb to create my own fusible Lutradur, but you can't by it pre-glued (as it were). The same applies to both Evolon and Zeelon; they cope fine with fusible web, but they don't come in a pre-glued version. Unlike fusible on silk, though, which tends to look as if it has been glued, unless you're very careful, Lutradur shows no sign of having been glued. Good news for enthusiastic fusers and applique fiends!
All three layers of the Lutradur brooches, above, were fused together before they were stitched; can you tell?
