Couture and More in a Can!!!

I'm always intrigued when a designer invents something that takes on a life of its own. Have you ever done that with items you've designed? You invent it with your intention and then it takes on more possibilities way beyond your intended idea, giving it even more value!

Fabrican has been around since 2010 and was inspired by one innovative designer observing the qualities of Silly String. But it can be used for anything from fashion, to upholstery, to on-the-spot tea towels, to medical bandaging, automotive uses, cleaning, and who knows what else! (I'm thinking...graffiti that can be removed from a wall and it's respected instead of seen as destroying property?)

The aerosol and polymer environmental issues may still need some tweaking, (Is it BPA-free? What is inhaled?), but the whole concept and limitless uses for such an invention are exciting and certainly make me want to go into the studio and finish up some inventions. I hope this inspires you to finish up those UFOs as well.
