Polyester fluff is used as stuffing and is made from recycled plastic or polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It is fibered, fluffed and flocked to create long sheets of strong water repelling foam which is ideal for Floral Art, especially if you use cardboard as a base.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
