Hot Mojo - playing with meltable textiles

From my Hot Mojo art class (dabbling with meltable fibers, textiles). I put the piece together at home and embellished it with various metals, but the centerpiece was made in class using hand-painted Tyvek, finely shredded cellophane called Angelina, and little snippets of Textiva, all melted together. I also sewed some bronze beads to the Tyvek. The background canvas was painted black, then washed with a copper shimmer.
