Another one of my christmass presents was a pot of gesso. I have seen some people online prime their embroideries with gesso and then paint on them wit varying techniques. I decided to use acrylic paints because I have some experience with them. I used my tast sample of pekinese stitch and thorn stitch. . I’m not sure if I’ll leave this one as is or work on it some more. This is just a tryout piece that doesn’t mean anything, but I’m sure I’m going to use this technique for more serious stuff when the opportunity arrises.
