1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Portrait on: February 04, 2011 03:58:22 PM
When I recently saw an article in Country Living magazine about creating an embroidered portrait, I was instantly entralled.  They looked like lovely line drawings!  Using a straight pin, the technique is to poke holes in paper using a photocopy of a favorite photo as a guide.  Then, lines are made by connecting the dots together by stitching through the holes.

I consider this a practice try, as I want to get a better quality paper suitable for framing as a gift for my sister.  But the technique proved fun, and I definitely will be creating a better one soon!

So, question: how did you apply the bleach?  I am totally digging the outline and the random lines, spots, etc.  Did you use a brush or bottle?  I have only used a bleach pen and it is thick, so I don't think the lines would look as fluid.

Great job on the shirt!

Love them!  Especially the sassy sayings.  Aren't freezer paper stencils awesome?  I'm an addict.  I just started using them with discharge paste to remove the color from shirts rather than adding ink.  It stinks, so work near a window or fan, but the results are fun.

I do have some problems with the emulsion sheets getting holes in them on screens I use and therefore wash a lot. I tried the screen filler to keep from having to re-burn, but it didn't work very well. Is that what you are referring to?

I haven't tried them yet, but I just purchased generic emulsion sheets from Dharma Trading Company website.

And i have to ask re. your user name- are you in Ohio? Go Bucks! :-)

Such a smart idea!  I love how the pocket is functional, too.

I havenn't tried them, but after some research I am thinking about giving customink.com a try.  Their prices seem reasonable.
