Inspiration for Your Own Thread Painting
Traditional thread painting uses short and long stitches (placed side by side) in order to gradually build color and form. It’s recommended that the long stitches be about half an inch while the shorter ones measure a quarter inch. Make sure that you stick to varying the two lengths in order to ensure that your colors blend beautifully.
Of course, contemporary embroiderers don’t always play by the rules. Check out how different artists have used needle painting in their work in a variety of ways.
