We embroider pictures with beads: a master class for beginners The choice of the embroidery scheme is paramount in this matter. It is equally important that your workplace is properly and conveniently equipped. Here it is necessary to pay special attention to high-quality illumination, which will also contribute to the high level of the working process. So, we will need: a lamp; embroidery schemes; thread of capron; canvas (Aida 14); ruler; needle for work with beads; scissors; coffee spoon; multi-colored container for beads; beads of the right colors (number 10,11). To be convenient, you should send a light clothworking surface. This will greatly simplify the process of collecting beads, if you accidentally spill them. Choose shades of beads to create paintings. The most optimal is this option: pour a small amount of beads into the container with compartments and see how harmoniously the desired colors match. Having acquired at least a little experience in working with beads, it will be easy for you to choose the necessary and compatible colors of beads for the future picture. Some needlewomen do on the table smallpiles of beads and thus make a selection. We chose a standard palette for drawing a rectangular shape, used to dilute paints with water. It is worth such a container is very inexpensive, and you can buy it in the office supplies department. You will definitely benefit from it in the process of work. If you chose a small-sized picture to be created on the embroidery frame, it will be much more convenient if the beads are placed on the canvas. In the case of more than 3 colors of beads, then you need to use the caps for better storage of beads. You can buy them in specialized stores. In one container you can put twenty-five grams of beads. I do not advise you to put more in one lid,than three colors of beads. Having completed the work on the embroidering of the picture, you will have to disassemble the beads for a long time, sorting it into color compartments. So, our main workplace is prepared for work. We chose the scheme for embroidery. Now proceed to the very process of embroidery. First, pull the base on the hoop. Having in advance thought out the scale of the future product, we measure with the help of the ruler the place from which we will begin the creation of the picture. The embroidery scheme should be directly in front of you. In the process of embroidering it is necessary to work with a ruler that will help you to embroider without getting lost. After completing the embroidery series, you need to move the rulerfurther (lower or higher, given where you started to embroider). So we are working. In case you have chosen a larger scheme for work, then you better use a transparent ruler in order to easily view the subsequent rows for embroidery. If the chosen scheme is small, then the ruler can be taken any. The main thing is that it is convenient for you to work it. The side with which you start knitting is not so important. Be it a bottom or top. It is necessary that you do not have any inconvenience while doing this. However, it is important to pay attention to the fact that in the future work you will need to adhere to this, chosen by you in the beginning direction, until the end of the embroidery process. We suggest you start embroidering from the bottom. But this is a matter of convenience. There are different ways of embroidery with beads: with the use of the seam "Forward needle", "stalked" or stitch, as well as other types of joints. The key method of working on the picture with beads - beads are attached to the canvas by stitches of the "semi-cross" seam, in which all the beads coincide with the cross on the proposed pattern. This diagram shows the method of embroidery on the leftright. On the presented photos of the embroidery with beads we worked in the same way, however from the right side to the left (that is, the embroidery process started from the bottom in the right side). Each bead in the process of embroidery should have an equal slope and evenly adhere to the fabric. However, this is ideal. But in practice, to achieve this is very difficult. The reason for this is not the ideal in terms of the evenness of the bead itself. Very different in size beads with a line of silver shade from the inside. Even if the size of the pack is 10, still this kind of bead will be larger than the standard bead of the same size. Therefore, when using this kind of beads, the subsequent particle is selected with a smaller diameter. The first and final beads in a row are advisablefasten with the 2nd stitch. However, if your plans include the further design of the painting under the glass, then this step is not necessary, because your product after this kind of design will not be subject to dissolution or a rush of threads. Pay attention also to the length of the thread. If it is too long, then in the process of work it can get confused and create unnecessary nodules. As soon as you begin to attach the first particles, you need to fix the thread from the wrong side. The same must be done in the future, periodically changing the thread. Such actions will ensure the beauty of the underside of the product and prevent the further unraveling of the thread during the very embroidery. Some needlewomen process the thread with wax. However, using a thread of capron, in such processing you will not need. And further. Remember: embroidery is better only with a good mood. And even if you are sad, this activity can improve your mood. Having completed the work on the picture, you will select an elegant frame for it. You can ask for help in a specialized workshop or do it yourself. You can read about this in other articles. We hope that our simple tips will help you in the process of embroidering your 1st picture with beads!
