GOLDWORK LION Kit of the Month

The Goldwork Lion is an intermediate counted thread and goldwork technique. The kit comes with a detailed instruction booklet with lots of diagrams to guide you through the embroidery.

Working the embroidery: The design is transferred onto the fabric using the tissue paper tacking method. The face of the lion is worked in a blackwork pattern. Shading and dimension is created on the face by changing the colour of the metallic thread or adding a stitch down the center of the diamond shape in the pattern. The face is outlined in gold pearl purl. The mane is worked in a range of different colour couching threads such as rococco and check thread in gold and Japan Thread in Oriental bronze, pewter, copper and rustic gold. Gold and copper purl threads are sewn down on some strands of the mane in the method of s-ing which is working stem stitch with flexible gold beads.

I am offering free correspondence and free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.
