Treat yourself and create a holiday heirloom. The design is hand-painted on 18 mesh canvas with a finished size of 16 x 7 1/2. The model is finished as a stand-up shadow Box. The battery pack is cleverly hidden and with a flip of the switch, the flames illuminate (see the second picture) becoming a nighttime showpiece sitting on top of your mantle or side table.
I have used a variety of metallic, silks, and rayon threads and for added bling, Sundance beads and Swarovski crystal jewels. The dated ornament is optional. The ornament is not painted but charted in the stitch guide. This gives you the freedom to ignore or add your initials rather than a date. As with most of my designs, I have utilized some creative thread techniques: fluffy snow on the tree candle and bullions on the pinecone. The variety of stitches used makes this piece educational and a joyful stitching experience. Suitable for all levels of stitchers who have a basic understanding.
The canvas includes a detailed stitch guide with color photographs of each stitch, step-by-step pictures of the various techniques, a mini bead pack (2019, mistletoe beads, the gold beads used in the pomegranate candle) and the battery light pack. Requires an AA Battery not included.
Each canvas is custom painted when ordered. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery which gives me enough time to paint your canvas and assemble your candle and bead kit.
