I have some questions.
I am in dire need of some crafty advice. I just finished a embroidery portrait of Bette Davis and background for a school project. unfortunately (self taught) I used pencil as sketch marks. Can i hand wash the material in woolite? I bought woolite and thought I could wash it in cold water by hand but I spent so much time on this and I am afraid my thread might bleed.
Question#2: After(if the washing is OK) it is dry .. has anyone ever done a "wash" with watercolor or gauche on material? my grandmother use to do watercolor on material and I thought it might give the piece some depth since its for a non-traditional illustration piece.
I would greatly appreciate any advice! thank you so much.
