The Wondercat School: Brush Embroidery Tutorial
Posted by mrmykie
OK, class…settle down, backs straight…it’s learning time.
I’m your teacher Ms. Finlay, bad boys and girls will end up in the naughty box…
Right then children, time to learn brush embroidery…
First things first, create a canvas on which to work. I have made some almond biscuits filled with marzipan and blackcurrant compote and covered with lemon royal icing. You can do the same or use a cake perhaps? Maybe a piece of cling film over a plate? T.B.H. I don’t really care what you use I just need to keep you occupied until playtime…
Take some royal icing in a piping bag. I used a number 2 piping tip, you can use the same or just snip off the end of the bag if your mean mummy and daddy couldn’t be bothered to provide you with the correct equipment…I’ll be having words with them at parents evening, if I can get your perverted father to keep his eyes off my tits.
Pipe a zig-zag curved line for each petal. Think of a circle and pipe the petals to follow the edge; you don’t know what a circle is? Have you paid no attention to anything I’ve said this year? You cretinous little monster…don’t even start with the crying!
Now, take a wet brush and drag from the middle of the line to the middle of the imaginary circle. The aim is to smudge only half the line so you leave a raised edge. Wipe and dampen your brush for each petal. What do you mean all this water has made you pee yourself?! I’m paid to teach not wipe up your messes…you can sit there stinking of piss until your mum picks you up.
I’ve told you what to do now, just keep doing it until the bell rings and I can be rid of you all.
Take a look at some of mine and try not to kill yourselves whilst I sneak out the fire exit for a fag.
