Mediterranean Complexion contains:
– 6 skeins of Soie d’Alger silk
– 1 spool each of Soie Perlee and Soie de Paris
– 3 spools of Soie 100/3
Collections of silk thread organized by complexion type were designed provide the embroiderer with a realistic palette of flesh tone shades.
Traditionally professional embroiderers kept their “face” silks in a separate box from their other threads.
These silks vary in weight, type, texture and shade enabling you to create a range of effects—down to the finest features such as eyelids or fingertips.
You will notice none of the kits contain equally shaded values of the same color, because a face is never painted or portrayed in a single color.
Each kit is organized around an ethnic theme, but should not be considered a rigid definition, but a suggested guideline..
Threads can be used on both fabric and canvas.
