An Oldie but a Goodie: Faux Chenille Appliqué
I recently revived an old technique while doing some design development work: Faux Chenille Appliqué. Our friend Brian Lessard at Rutland taught us this technique years ago and it really holds up in terms of delivering WOW! factor while still remaining tasteful..
– Working from a vintage Pepsi Cola logo we added various stitching effects, twill and chenille visual textures, and strategic shadowing for visual depth. The actual texture is all about Rutland Sponge Puff.
– Standard screens were used, no capillary/thick film required. Mesh counts used were 86 and 225’s.
– A few color tweaks and… perfection!
