Cloth Embossing

This is the first cloth embossing I did. I never knew it was so much fun to do. These embossing kits are available to most of art and craft supply shops. They have different pictures with different sizes. The box includes a paint brush, a palette and 6 colors of paint(gold,pink,green,silver,blue,copper). This picture took 2 days for me to complete, I have to admit I was very slow. I left the picture to dry for 24 hours thoroughly. 
Then I placed it on a table and ironed the back of the embossing cloth with medium heat as high heat didn't work much for me. After ironing you can see the picture has raised well perfectly embossed. to prevent damage of the picture I suggest it to be framed well. I gifted this to my close friend and she loved it. Though the picture looks small here its actually very very big and lovely after being framed. Hope you like it.
