This pattern is done in moss stitch/seed stitch, which are two names for the same stitch. There are plenty of resources on line for learning it, but it is really very simple: Cast on an odd number of stitches (the odd number is really important) Each row will be worked the same--start knit 1, purl 1, and repeat to the end of the row Because you cast on ...

This is a relatively new trend in graphical design which is known as low poly design or low polygon design. If you google "low poly design" you'll find plenty of tutorials on how to produce such pictures by yourself (e.g. this one). In (very) short, you take a picture, triangulate it and generates the polygons out of your the induced mesh. Clearly, ...

If the material is metal, one can use a wrinkle finish powdercoat to accomplish this result. It's not quite exactly the same texture, but wrinkle finish powdercoat may qualify in that it's random and irregular. Using search terms "texture powder coat" provides a number of similar finishes, including hammertone and silver vein, the latter shown below: If ...

So, in the meantime, I'm trying something a bit different... It's not the neatest sewing job, but I've managed to sew the strands together, doing a basic up and down through the middle (with the strands overlapping each other) and then looping over and under each side to hold it together on the sides as well. At least this way, there's no big knot and it ...

The process is called working wet into wet. Wet into wet means the paint medium (be it water colour, acrylic paint, oil paint, ink) is applied to a surface still "wet" with solvent/medium. The solvent used to apply the previous layer of paint is still present on the surface where the new layer is being applied. The solvent has not yet evaporated (or the ...

The "Stitching" on the edge of your sleeve, is actually a strip of fabric, that was folded around the raw edge of the loden cloth, and sewn to the loden cloth. This strip of fabric is called "Binding". (it's not piping, because there's no cord running through it. The puffiness comes from the thickness of the boiled wool loden cloth inside it). The ...

So there is a lot to unpack here, hah. But seeing from other comments that you are new to sewing, I can understand how it can be a little daunting to try and make a direct replication of something you've found online. There is no formal "technique" you will need to follow, but rather a knowledge and understanding of the materials you will need to sew a ...

I don't have any experience with Photoshop textures, so I'll limit my answer to general information. Colors First pick the "pure" color of the rock in bright daylight, which will be the base color of your mountain. In the first reference image of your question, that's a dark grey with a tint of brown. For other types of rock (like sandstone or marble) the ...

The double-sided ones are often called "grommets". Good search terms are "fabric grommets" or "fabric grommet tool". Amazon has a huge selection, including different sizes and colors. The grommets consist of two pieces. One is like a shaped washer that goes on the back. The other piece is similar to the eyelets you're using, ...

In order to answer, I want to back up a minute, and explain a bit about how loden fabric is made. Loden is a type of felted/fulled wool fabric, which means that an original fabric is created by weaving or knitting (per this website, loden fabric is woven). Once the fabric has been created, you basically get the fabric wet and then abuse it mercilessly until ...

There is a previous discussion here: What exercises can I do to improve the line quality of my drawings? Holding a pencil is mostly up to the artist's preference. Discussed in the link above, if you want to have shorter strokes or finer detail, you would want to use more of the fingertips. If you want a more fluid motion in a line/drawing, you would want to ...

I don't know if this was intended but after looking for banded column style I ran into rustification or rustication: Rustication is a form of exterior ornamentation particular to buildings in the classical style. It is defined by projecting stones with sunken joints or grooves conveying an air of deliberate roughness and strength. That is not compelling ...

The mathematical term for this kind of pattern would be pmm wallpaper pattern. There are seventeen types of repeating planar patterns, and this is one of the simplest ones. The characteristics of the pattern are based on it having perpendicular symmetry axes through the centers of each of the tessellation units. There are also 180 degree rotation ...

It's an aquarelle painting and from the looks of it either watercolors or inks (or both) were used. This technique uses lots of water, so you need really thick paper for it. Many hobby / craft / art shops sell special aquarelle paper. It's as thick as cardboard but white. Acrylic colors are not well suited for this kind of art because they dry too fast ...

The front looks like standard knitting (stockinette stitch).The picture quality of the back is too low to say for sure, but it looks similar to how the backside a stockinette stitch should look. The stockinette stitch is the most basic stitch and used for most machine-knitted fabrics. You find it in almost all t-shirts, sweaters, socks and other knitwear. ...

Is it doable by hand? Yes, every knitting pattern is doable by hand. You might need some tutorials and experience to make it look good, but it's doable by hand. The main problem with such a light product is that it uses very light yarn, thereby needing a great number of stitches, increasing the time it takes to knit. What is it? To be honest, I'm not ...

First, if you haven't already, disassemble the figures. This will allow for easier reach of those parts that are usually obscured, a more even application of the paint, and a cleaner colouring around the joints. You can carefully use a blow drier to make the plastic a little less rigid. Wash the figure or parts with a little soap to get rid of any dirt that ...

For an adult with fully-developed motor skills, the holding technique that's best for you for a specific application will largely come naturally. Some muscles are stronger than others, some joints are more flexible than others, and some positions trade off fine control vs. strength and stamina. For extremely fine detail, you can manipulate the point of the ...

It's mostly a matter of preference, but the way you hold a pen(cil) does influence the pressure, precision, range, and rotation. Everyone develops a preferred way of holding a pen (often when learning to write), and as this grip is likely used the most, it usually is the most comfortable for that person. Because of this experience (training), this grip ...

Do you mean paint won’t stick to aluminum foil? Because any two-component epoxy based paint will stick to aluminum and aluminum foil. But I think your approach is flawed from the get go. You should look into the way cosplayers build swords. They have a skeleton-like frame (sometimes a solid wood dowel) underneath the sheathing which is very often a type of ...

In addition to the elements mentioned in User18849's excellent answer, I think the simplicity of each element (in terms of usability and function) and obvious quality of everything, greatly contribute to the apparent coziness. This hobbit hole is an unintimidating space where you don't have to worry about figuring out how to use anything, nor that you might ...

A 'joined' font may refer to a type of script typeface, where all characters of a word are connected by single lines. Most so-called 'handwriting' fonts make use of these glyphs. And some fonts, such as your example, may offer an additional isolated glyph version, like this font: As the name 'script' implies, it is derived from handwriting, and can still ...

The answer is yes, and theoretically, there are a number of options. But as a practical matter, you will probably need to find paint with the desired characteristics. Background Glossy vs. matte is a characteristic of the finish. Glossy has a very smooth surface that reflects light uniformly. Matte has a surface that is irregular at a microscopic level ...

Some sources found: (More pertaining to the first image) Don't think their is a definite term per se, but here is some info: Term 1: "Illustration on photo/photograph" When searching Google with these terms, came across the original artist related to image 1: Source: https://www.behance.net/gallery/53008399/Vector-covered-souls The tools used were ...

The style is indeed usually referred to as 'low-poly', but to nuance the accepted answer a little, 'low poly design' refers to a specific type of 3D modeling in which it is the expressive goal of the modeler/artist to create models with a low polygon count (i.e. with as few possible triangular faces). It became more popular ever since more possibilities for ...

Based on this encyclopedia of embroidery stitches, it looks like this is a "darning stitch", which is in the running stitch family. The darning stitch is about making rows of straight running stitches near each other. The technique of darning is used to mend torn clothes, especially socks and looks like a woven patch. Other sites corroborate ...

I believe it would be called a tessellated pattern where a single shape is repeated without overlap.
