Things you need:
1. 100% Polyester fabric
2. Things that can shape your fabric: it should be something that will not be affected by heat (marbles, aluminium foil)
3. Lots of elastic bands


What I did in class:
I did two others also! But I lost the samples and I did not take a photo 🙁 My mistake.

How to do it:
1. Shape the fabric with the items you want to mould the fabric with, aluminium foil or pebbles (take note: you need to tie the elastics tightly)



2. Wrap everything in aluminium foil and boil it for 30 mins.

3. Wait for it to cool before removing the shapely things. (basically the mould)

Final Sample:

For this particular technique because of how scrunched up it is I think keeping it in its natural form will be beautiful although I can think of a practical design purpose.
