Perfect Divisions and Grids Using Grid Sheets,and “Cross Stitch” on Eggs with Wax
By Karen Hanlon
Thursday August 18th - 3pm - 5pm - Event Tent
Do you dislike having to use Math to figure out the exact spacing of divisions on your eggs? This demo shows a quick and simple method to get perfect divisions every time! It will also show you how to create grids of all sizeson your egg, and how to use the grid technique to reproduce cross stitch patterns on eggs using wax.
This Hands-On Demo will show:
The use of the grid strips sheet and quilling paper (both of which will be provided) to divide eggs into any number of perfectly even segments
How to easily divide your band into as many equal sections asyou wish without using Math
How to make a perfectly even grid of any size, and how to adjust grids for the shape of the egg
How to plan a grid to fit a cross-stitch pattern of your choice, for use with dyes, scratch or wax techniques
How to grid for a repeating pattern on a vertical or horizontal band so that no spaces are left over
How to create wax grid “fabric” of whatever size you wish for your cross stitch pattern
How to make and apply the coloured waxes for filling in the patterns
This is a hands-on demo. You will need to bring eggs (of any type) and a pencil, and if you wish to practice with the wax, you will need a candle, beeswax, and candle-heated kistky (fine or X-fine, and medium). I will be available during the course of the weekend to guide you if you wish to complete an egg in this style.
Grid strip sheets, quilling paper, coloured wax samples, a detailed handout and crossstitch patterns appropriate for eggs are included.
Cost: $10 CAD - please pay Karen at the retreat
