White pens – awesome and difficult

White pens – awesome and difficult

I love my white pens, trust me on that – but it’s a love-hate relationship. I would use them a lot more if they weren’t so damn difficult to write with. As you can see from this experiment above all of the three writing pens can write on acrylic paint (that is totally dry) but […]

My lovely hand dyed fabric pile

My lovely pile of hand dyed fabrics! This year I’ve experimented with the idea of “making the material my own” more than ever before.

I think it’s inspiring, especially if I don’t have the energy to create something […]

Here is a description of the material: “The properties of these fibres result in an ability to provide luminescent-iridescent highlights, […]
