BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO SILK SHADING

Soft back book, 48 pages, written by Clare Hanham (trained at the Royal School of Needlework) and published by Search Press

A simple guide to needle painting. There are photograph stages of the long and short stitch on flowers, leaves and a butterfly with instructions.

You will get a better understanding of the needle painting (silk shading) technique from one of my needle painting kits as there are diagrams and more detailed instructions but it is a good book to have photograph stages of an embroidery which you would not get from my needle painting instruction booklets.

To try one of my needle painting kits visit the following page of my website: Needle Painting Kits
