CMYK. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key Black.
In the four-colour printing, the entire spectrum of colours is reproduced with only these four colours, simply layering them one over the other.
Taking inspiration from this process, Valentina Sardu studied an interesting variation of her favourite embroidery technique… She calls it “CMYKwork”…
Blackwork embroidery is traditionally monochrome, but it lends itself to many creative variations!
Here you can see the first result of this study: Soap Bubbles, a new design achieved after several tries, exploring various combinations of primary and neutral colours.
This new design is now available on Book Depository*!

A girl, embroidered in traditional blackwork, blows delicate and ethereal soap bubbles in rainbow colours. An optical illusion achieved exclusively by overlapping geometric motifs in the three primary colours (yellow, cyan and magenta) and white.
