AIDA WITH PAINTED BACKGROUND is a high quality canvas with 54 eyelets per 10cm of fabric (14ct). Aida is softer and more delicate than a traditional canvas. On this kind of Aida, the background of the picture is painted and the place where the embroidery will be left empty. Thanks to the painted background, the finished embroidery gives the illusion of three-dimensionality. To make embroidering easier, a colorful graphic pattern is included in the set - the diagram and color of the embroidery thread needed to complete the picture. The large cross on the canvas and the graphic scheme indicates the center of the pattern – a point from which the work should start. The embroidered pattern should be larger than the other field and overlap background. The pattern should be embroidered with 3 or 4 threads of divided mouline.
