|This is the surprise from the last Sneak Peek post.|
I've been trying to take cute pictures of my two cats interacting, but they refuse to pose for me. The solution? I decided to embroider a portrait of my cats that shows them in a very typical scene. The tabby in the foreground is Mia. In the background, you see Magia getting ready to pounce and scare Mia.
I embroidered most of the portrait and then thought of painting it somehow to get more color and make the details of their coats more noticeable. I thought of using acrylic paint, then fabric markers and then it hit me, why not use crayons? I researched a little bit about fabric crayons but didn't find anything conclusive so I decided to give it a try with regular crayons. I used Crayola and I love how it turned out. Would anyone like to see a tutorial of how I did this?
I originally thought of making these custom for anyone interested and available for sale at my shop but it's been hard to find the supplies I need locally. I also wanted to get some feedback before I attempt to sell them, so... What do you think?
