    Also try loosening the tension a bit -- When I use metallic thread for embroidery, I have to loosen the tension AND slow the motor down. So no pedal to the metal either :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Yes, Your right (s l o w) is good and some time I even put the tension to "0" and the foot pressure really lose #4 on my machine.. #1 Being normal.
    The color crayons as just the ordinary type in that giant box, you've got a better choice of colors for shading there. I use Mostly Sulky this one is Holoshimmer 145-6007, I used Invisible fine .004 Thread in the bobbin, I feel it safer then nylon for longevity ??? I usually try to keep the weight of the thread in the bobbin the same as the top threads.. Big difference if you don't! I'll post another picture that another friend did and you'll see how she shaded hers. Of course she is an oil painting artist too, so she's got the true knowledge of blending colors.
    Thanks so much for all your compliments, sure makes me feel good when I know somebody else likes it, You just never know if your doing good (in the eyes of others) until somebody tells you... At least that's how it is with me. It really makes me nervous to work on other's works!

    In a previous post you said that you use regular crayons, is that what
    you used in this one too? (I have the fabric crayons - and think maybe the only difference is the price)

    And what did you put in the bobbin when you used the gold thread?

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
    Here are a couple more, You'll see the difference in colors... Also I just remembered the instructions say to use a close woven fabric for best results. I'm not sure if she suggested all batiks but I think so using a light color.

    Hi Crissie, just wanted to tell you that my Granddaughter (11) and I used your method of coloring flowers with regular crayons and then ironing
    them, and they turned out beautifully.
    She is making a wall hanging for one of her teachers who is retiring.
    We took a foam paintbrush and "watercolored" muslin, spritzed it to make it run, and ironed it dry.
    Then we drew flowers on the muslin with a magic marker and colored them in with the crayons, and ironed them again. Really beautiful!!!!

    Thank you so much for introducing this "new craft"!

    I did a childs quilt like this years ago. I never thought of doing flowers. You did a beautiful job, I just love it. You have inspired me to try something like it. Or you could send me yours. I know you will be happy to do that..Hahaha
