Brush Embroidery hints and tips

  • Brushing with egg white will give a glossy finish using water will give a matt finish.
  • Always blot your brush of excess liquid so it doesn't disolve your coating.
  • Royal icing made from powdered egg white (eg wilton meringue powder) will be easier to work with than using fresh egg white.
  • Adding a drop of glycerine to the royal icing, will slow the drying time.
