Kanva has differences in composition, rigidity,color, technology of drawing. It is important that it is inelastic, otherwise the picture will subsequently sag. Kanva should never be stretched. If the scheme involves beading the entire canvas, then use the same as for cross stitching. It should be remembered that it is important that the canvas had sufficiently large cells, then the needle will be easy to enter. Types of canvas So, first, we use a conventional canvas with a uniform binding of threads. However, it differs in color, composition and number of cells. The best option when choosing a fabric is a canvas made of flax, which is characterized by good stiffness and binding of threads. The fabric number is chosen based on the size of the beads. It is important that the beads are slightly smaller than the cells.The most commonly used canvas is numbered 14and 18. For the partial embroidery of the bead image, a cloth with a patterned ink is used. In this case, the material can be either natural or mixed, or be synthetic. The main thing is that its structure is sufficiently dense. On this type of fabric holes are marked with small dots, where you need to enter a needle. A vivid example of such paintings are the icons, where the hands and the face are not embroidered.Canvas with a picture can be bought in a set with allnecessary materials or separately, when the needlewoman selects the materials herself. For the drawing of a pattern, for example, a canvas is used for clothing. After performing the embroidery, it is removed, alternately the threads are stretched. There is a water-soluble type - a product for removing canvas, moistened with ordinary water. We looked at the canvas for embroidery with beads, now we'll figure out what kind of weaves are.In the simplest canvas, four threads are intertwined,which intersect uniformly, resulting in clearly expressed squares. On them then embroider needlewares. In a double-bound material, only two threads are intertwined. The fabric is much softer than the previous one and thinner. "Interlok" is a canvas in which the interlacing of filaments forms a thin grid. On such a fabric, the drawing turns out to be smaller, but the work is more subtle and elegant.
