Below is an
article which teaches you step by step how to mount
a silk embroidery onto a board.
Prepare a wood veneer that is a bit larger than the
embroidery painting, 12 to 18cm longer than
embroidery painting in width and height.
Glue a piece of paper on the midst of the wood
veneer. This step is needed for some flat stitching
embroidery paintings whose background silk satins
are transparent. As to random stitching embroidery,
the paper is not needed. Use white paper for white
silk satins, black paper for black silk satins.
Put glue on the wood veneer. Please note only the
four boards of the embroidery painting are glued to
Using a brush spread the glue.
Put the embroidery painting on the board. Stretch
the embroidery painting on the wood veneer.
Strain the embroidery painting where there are
traces to make it smooth and solid.
Put a piece of paper on the silk embroidery. Iron
the embroidery painting. The ironed embroidery
painting is ready to be framed.
Frame the embroidery painting according to the wood
veneer size. Don’t forget matting. That will make
the embroidery painting look better. Put a piece of
glass in front of the embroidery to prevent dust if
your customers like.
Step Six is the most important step. Check the
embroidery painting after Step Five to see where the
embroidery painting is not smooth. Strain it and
make it solid and smooth. Don’t iron the
embroidery before all the traces are straitened out.
Make sure it is smooth and unwrinkled.
