That is gorgeous!  How did you melt the tyvek?  Just put it in the oven?  Did you melt it onto your other material or was it done separately?

Tyvek is  a synthetic fabric-like material that comes in different weights. I belive it is often used in wall linings of USA homes (At least I keep seeing it on Extreme Makeover:Home Edition).

see here for a possible source -  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39969.0

to met it you can use a hot air tool (normally used for stampcraft) or place it between 2 sheets of baking parchment and heat with a medium dry iron - it reacts very quickly so be careful

to add to that, it goes between your wall and your outter coverling like siding or wood shingles!i beleive it helps with drafts and what not and water coming in.

btw i really like what you made Smiley
