I have just returned from a lovely day with Angie Hughes experimenting with techniques to make embroidered icons. Organised by CQ Region 7, 14 of us explored the use of metallic foils on black velvet to create aged icon images. I never thought I would find a legitimate reason for scoffing Ferraro Rocher or Quality street, but their wrappers work brilliantly!
The images are a bit too real for my taste, but the skills are definitely transferable and I can see their use in a future JQ at at the very least!
