Bali boots from polymer

Jon Anderson on PCDaily

This must be the week for innovations. I’d heard rumblings about a new transfer process that Bali’s Jon Anderson is working on. He’s keeping the process under wraps for now but you can see what he’s up to (and purchase works) on his lovely new site.

He transfers the image from his polymer canes to fabric using a secret elixir. He’s getting consistent results while he works out colorfastness and other issues. You can put your name in for your own JSA boots and be a trendsetter.

The site is chock full of goodies including an interview that explains his history in polymer art. Keep up with Jon’s progress on his site and his Facebook page. Jon was voted the members’ favorite in this year’s IPCA Awards.

    Love this post. Such an inspiration.

      It’s funny that so many polymer artists were figuring out how to do fabric patterns in polymer and Jon has flipped it around by making polymer patterns on fabric. Polymer has come full circle!

        That’s really interesting. I’m super curious what his technique is and how it works. It opens the door for some pretty cool possibilities, for sure.

          Crazy! (I saw his sculpts in a local shop in NH just this weekend!)

            Jon kindly gave me a large image transfer of a wall piece he made when I was in Bali last year. It’s a very cool idea and I’m anxious to see how he’s progressing when I return in September. Way to go Jon!!!
