The artist dips doilies into liquid porcelain, dries over a bowl and fires in a kiln; the fibers burn away leaving the lacy porcelain behind...gorgeous! Maybe try with a slip like material?
This tutorial is from the Purl Bee. I love this felted wool throw and would love to make this out of recycled sweaters. It would be perfect for the winter. I love the sewing technique for constructing this. It's the best I've seen out of similar projects.
Love this....Punch a hole in a cardboard magazine file, insert a cabinet knob. Much prettier and easier to take on and off of the shelf!
