Part 4 - Lips
Here is the fourth part of a tutorial for stumpwork portraits, inspired by Fay Maxwell, whose excellent book Ladies with Hatitude I warmly recommend.
Use two strands of either skin-toned thread for a natural look, or a lipstick colour.
Two Straight Stitches for full lips and a serious look,
or two Lazy Daisy Stitches for a sweeter look.
Next up, Part 5 - Behind the Neck and Clothing, will be posted on Thursday.
