- Layout a “shading map” before you start stitching so you know ahead of time where you want to have light, medium or dark shading.
- Thread shade by matching your thread’s value (L,M,D) with your shading map
- Remember to space your stitch lines according to whether you want light, medium or dark shading
- Keep in mind that you’ll be stopping often to cut and change threads unlike with the one thread shading method we learned the other day.
