I then did the same print onto Lutrador. This comes out a lot paler. I've not used Lutrador before so am not really sure about what I'm doing.
I placed the Lutrador on top of the calico, backed them both with pelmet Vilene and did a freehand zigzag stitch to highlight different areas.
I then ‘zapped’ the Lutrador. Big mistake!!
The background pattern on the calico showing through the melted Lutrador looks like it has been rescued from a bonfire!
As I said earlier, back to the drawing board on this one.
I shall try again but this time I will stitch only on the dark background areas and melt the Lutrador in the coloured areas, which as you can see from the original photos below will probably be more representational anyway.
