Project

Homemade Impression Mat (Radiator)

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Plastic Canvas for needlepoint/embroidery... *Plastic canvas sheets come in 5, 7, 10, and 14-count (or mesh)... The "count" refers to how many squares/holes there are per inch...So a 7-count sheet would have larger holes than a 10-count, for instance. * You can cut them to any size you like using regular scissors. * The 7 & 10-count / 10-1/2" x 13-1/2" sheets (colored or clear) are the easiest to find locally (Wal-Mart, Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby) and cost LESS THAN A DOLLAR! What are you most proud of? That I'm cheap and it worked in my favor! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The radiator is such a small part of the overall design, and it's partially covered by headlights anyway...no one will realize you didn't use a fancy tool for the texture.Save your money and give this a try!
