In this kind of surface embroidery threads of different colors on the free circuit. Clear boundaries between the colors here. The transition from one tone to another is obtained by using stitches of different lengths. They are part of one another. This creates a shadow effect. If you get small gaps between the stitches, they are filled with thread of a different tone, then the difference in the transition of tones will be visible clearly. If they execute threads of the same tone, the transition will be smoother.
Colored convex surface is done with the "flooring". Immediately before the surface of thicker threads than the threads for the embroidery, realize the "deck". Stitches of this technique are performed through it.
Usually on the edges and on the end of the pattern. embroidery make a lighter, and near the base and near the middle is darker. Sometimes 1 half perform the light tones and another for 2 or 3 shades darker. If the edges of the leaves are bent, then perform them in a different direction and different tones. If they are in the light, their bright embroidery threads; if the shade is darker.
The technique of the shadow surface of the following. The fabric transfer the pattern and note the division of tones of thread. What a simple pencil on tissue conducts a curved line serving as a boundary of transition of one tone into another. Moreover, the stitch must begin to perform above or below the intended line.
Stitches come very close to each other. If you embroider a leaf, then the stitches are on the location of the Central vein; if the petals of a flower in the direction of its center. Novice mistresses usually on a fabric put arrows or dashed lines showing the direction of the stitch.
In the implementation of the petal needs to maintain a certain consistency. Petal is divided into 3-4 parts. First fill the upper part of the petal from the middle. After fill the right half, the needle with the working thread is passed to the left edge on the front side and fill the left half.
Finish embroidering the top half of the petal, cut thread and begin the lower part of the thread of a different tone. In order for the transfer of tone took place gradually, it make the stitches different lengths, which are placed between the stitches of the 1st half. Next, embroider the left half of the bottom of the petal in the same way.
Usually the lower part of the petal perform darker tone than the top half.
When you run the leaf use a slanting surface. All stitches are performed towards the middle of the leaf. First, embroider right, then the left half sheet. Each half before embroidery divide into 3-4 pieces. The work begins with the extreme light parts from the top down. The edges of the stitches to do the shorter, in the center of the leaf is longer. The rest of the right half are also embroidered from top to bottom, using a darker tone of the thread. The second half of the stitch in the other direction, from the bottom up, from mid-leaf to the edge. Begin the dark embroidery thread and finish it with a light tone.
To make a color with embroidery contrast combinations, such as white, red, black, and blue. More often the work is carried out in a tonal matching thread. The tonal combination is a selection of thread tones of the same color — from dark to light. For example, light-green, light green, dark green, green. This should take into account the color of the fabric base. Also, be aware that all colors can be divided into 2 groups — cold and warm.
To the 1st colours include raspberry, purple, blue, light blue, pink, brown, green and Burgundy, with shades of the cold colors: brown-blue, blue-green, Burgundy-pink, etc. To consider warm tones of Golden yellow, red, orange, Burgundy, green, brown and intermediate shades between them: orange-brown, yellow-green, claret-red, red-brown, etc.
