Rowlux Illusion Film Designer Blog Hop and Giveaway!



 Hi Everyone!
     So glad you can come visit us today to see this revolutionary  new material called Rowlux®!
I was fortunate to receive a sample pack (colors below), to have some creative fun!

"Rowlux ® Illusion Film is made in the USA and comes in a diverse range of spectacular eye-catching colors and patterns.  These durable, translucent, 12" x 12" polycarbonate sheets add instant pizzazz to craft projects, seasonal accents, party decorations, scrapbooks, greeting cards, jewelry, furniture, frames, gifts, favors, accessories, art and DIY home decor projects."
You might have seen some displayed on the sides of drum sets, back grounds for a hot night club, or even on running shoes!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to Rowlux ® !
I knew instantly that I wanted to make a few eye popping pendants or charms to hang in the window. 

" The illusion of depth and motion is the result of thousands of tiny parabolic lenses that are molded into the surface of both sides of the material. These lenses create a pattern of light reflection and refraction resulting in stunningly brilliant optical effects. "
So I set about with my soldering supplies and tools to have some fun!
When making the pendant below,  I used a paper trimmer to easily cut my Rowlux ®film to fit the memory slides. 

Now as you can see, I'm still fairly new to soldering and some of my work is messy, but still full of character. :)  One thing I'd like to share with you is when you are working the solder around your piece...don't linger. The constant heat from the solder iron can cause the Rowlux ®film start to sweat inside the memory frames.
You can see in the upper left corner of the photo below that the film also lost some of it's depth because I was spending a tad too much time on that corner.

Rowlux ® can easily be cut and scored with paper trimmers. Scissors, Sizzix® steel rule dies, Sizzix® embossing folders and Sizzix® Scoreboards (which cut and score) by Eileen Hull also work well. Rowlux ® can be manually bent, rolled and folded. 
When working on cutting up smaller even lined pieces, I found it easiest to use the scoring blade on my paper trimmer and then just cut apart using my scissors.
Here are some other pretty pendants I made destined to be window catchers.


For this pendant, I simply wrapped floral wire around the blue Rowlux ® before putting between 2 glass memory slides. Fun!
