Russian Artist Embroiders Beautiful 3D-Effect Art Work

Katerina Marchenko is a Moscow-based embroidery artist who stitches colorful threads into tulle to create 3D-effect artwork. Her creations are inspired by fashion and haute couture, however, things like other people’s success’, life-affirming films, books, and exhibitions support her and her desire to create.

“My technique is a combination of many shades of threads – organized chaos,” the artist shared on Bored Panda. “I like to work with tulle, as it is a transparent fabric that makes embroidery visually more voluminous. I do not make sketches before I start working, I usually know I want to embroider something specific, such as an eye. I make the contours and select shades when I’m already in the process.”

In the fall of 2015 she got interested in embroidery, and a couple of months later she attended a sewing course where she had to sew a blouse. Inspired by dresses from Valentino, Elie Saab, Dior, she made a blouse from tulle with embroidery, and that is how her journey began.

5 фактов о процессе вышивки: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀☀️В своей работе я использую еврофатин и итальянскую сетку. ☀️Вышиваю иголкой на еврофатине и крючком, если на итальянской сетке. ☀️Вышивая иголкой могу использовать от 2 нитей и более, зависит от объема, который я хочу создать. ☀️В основном это мулине, иногда нить для вязания, реже – металлизированная нить. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ☀️Для вышивки крючком необходима специальная нить, но я часто использую DMC, либо нить для машинной строчки. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 5 facts about the process of embroidery: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀☀️Personally, I usually use the original eurotulle. It is a medium hard tulle. ☀️I embroider with a needle on eurotulle and if I work with luneville hook, then it is Italian tulle. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ☀️ If I use a needle, I can use 2 or more threads. It depends on the volume I want to create. ☀️ Mainly it is a floss thread. Sometimes a thread for knitting. And finally, less often – a metallized thread. ☀️ For luneville embroidery you will need a special thread. In my case, I often use the DMC, or the threads for the machine stitch. Good luck in creation your own masterpieces, dear followers☺️
