Printing on LutradurLutradur is an interesting spunbonded fiber, a 100% nonwoven polyester translucent web, that is a cross between fabric and paper. It has the strength of fabric with the body of paper. It will never fray or unravel. You can paint on it, fuse it, print on it, cut it, stencil on it, stitched, stamped and even melt it.. It comes in two weights, 70wt and a slightly heavier 100wt.
Lutradur - Claire
I have combined flowers that were pre-treated with gel medium and those that were not. The wise advice is to coat the sheet of Lutradur with a layer of gel medium before printing on it and that advice seems consistent with my results. The colors are brighter with the pretreatment than not. The sheets of Lutradur are backed either by a full Avery label sheet or freezer paper as a carrier through the printer. The flowers can be cut out with scissors for a clean-cut edge or can be cut with a heat tool which allows a more organic. uneven edge. Both look fine.
