To realize an original gobelin is a difficult work involving the creation of the model on computer and his effective sewing.
That means about 1-2 days of work at the computer for the chart, and then 3-4 months to obtain a gobelin of A4 sheet size, depending on the complexity of the model. For sewing my original gobelins, I chose to use threads in about 90 colors for each model.
The costs of such a model are quite high because many gobelins, was required to purchase over 120 skeins having in mind that some colors are more than one skein. Canvas is special used for gobelins, traced squares in the 10×10 points to fill which require 100 stitches on the front and 100 inside.
I fix the canvas on a special wood frame that allows me to sew gobelins of various sizes and to begin sewing from top to down using first the darkest colors. On sewing I do not use nodes and do not cross over more than a square.
After I finished the gobelin, I take the canvas out from the frame, I wash it and I iron it. In this way I make the canvas tighter and uniform. Do not try this with gobelins sewn with other threads than mouline Anchor!
To frame the gobelins, for me is as difficult as to realize it. I Choose frames of very high quality, assorted pass-partout colors from gobelins, and I use anti reflexive glass
