Does it always have to be ironed before adhering it? I purchased it and wanted to put it under a photo with the wispy end coming out past the photo.
Thanks for the help.

No you don't have to iron the DicroFibers to use them. Ironing is just another technique for using them.

Why not place these fibers between two sheets of glass, doing some fun alcohol and Stazon work on the glass?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
Well, why not? Guess there are lots of applications for these fibers!

Where are these fibers made and is it a USA made product because we know that if it comes outside the USA we have no safty control of it .
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
Great question! We just heard back from our supplier, and the Dicro is made in the USA.

I have a lot of this. One hint: You can spray it with Static Guard to keep it from "flying away"

I am concerned that these fibers could be harmful to your lungs if they are cut or break while handling and you then inhale the small particles. Could possibly cause mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer. It looks similar to angel hair (spun glass) used in the 40's and 50's which I would no longer use. My father died of mesothelioma for which there is no cure so I believe in prevention. Just wanted to make you aware of the possibilities. I know you wouldn't want to cause harm to anyone. Thanks!

These all polyester fibers were invented precisely to prevent any health problems. Replacing angel hair/spun glass for safety. They have been fully approved for the cosmetic industry, for which they are cut into the finest of particles imaginable, and used confidently by all industries. All art materials should be used with studio safety in mind.

I have a pkg of this - it's true, you can scorch it, and it is just a different look - not quite so shiny. No waste - gotta love that !!!

These fibers look like a lot of fun. I really like the look of the various colors on the binder. Punching out the "fabric", and using the templates are nice ideas too! Thanks for the ideas.

Nice use of this product I must say. I have seen it before but shyed away from it not know that it could be made into a fused sheet. Ty for showing that method. i do have a question though....how do we adhere it to cards etc w/o using a brad?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
Good question Pati. You can adhere the fibers with any adhesive. I like glue stick but any will work. I'm glad you liked the webisode.

Looks like a lot of fun to play with...
