A new Experiment

I have long been interested in the distressed textures of tyvek but it is difficult to get in sizes that are good for me to work with. My stepson Mark sent me some house wrap that he uses (he is a builder but it doesnt seem to act like Tyvek when heated. In a second hand magazine issue of Textile Down Under there was an article of using Tyvek with stitch so I decided to see exactly what the differences were. First I painted 4 sheets of 10 x10 cut squares from each of the Tyvek and wall wrap. I have used jewel colours. The tyvek is on the right. The paint seemed to sit on the surface of the Tyvek but soaked in more on the wall wrap. Now I am waiting for it to dry.
