I’ve posted some more Sketchbook Project pages here. Some of the pages have diluted acrylic ink as the background, and I found that I had some left over, so I tried it on a bit of canvas:
I don’t know how colour/water proof it is, but since it is unlikely to be washed again, I figured it didn’t really matter. I ironed it, so that may have set the colour a little. I know that acrylic paints are permanent on fabrics, so I assume that acrylic inks will be too. I’m not a huge fan of counted stitch, but I’m just trying out a few little stitches on this fragment, which I think will become part of a larger cloth, again using a little piece of the old silk lace.
I’m using space-dyed threads, and threads which are slightly finer than the holes so that the canvas shows through the stitches. I might even add some beads to this one.
