So what is Tyvek and how do we use it?
Tyvek is a brand of flashspun high-density polyethylene fibers which reacts to heat and forms interesting surface patterns. The paper we have is about the weight of copy paper and can be incorporated in wall hangings and artwork to provide beautiful texture.

Tyvek fabric is lighter, will give a less pronounced bubble effect - a more subtle effect when heated than paper.
You can buy paper in a pack 5 sheets for $8 to have a play - or lots more if you want.
The fabric is $7.50 for 1/2m x 1.5m.
