Lace has been around for centuries with its delicate appearance being used to enhance clothes and home decor. The origins of lace is unknown but many early pieces were created by nuns and featured in places of worship. As time has passed, techniques and materials have developed and changed but one thing has not - its beauty.
What was once seen as outdated has seen a recent revival as it is once again seen in fashion, in homes and even on the street.

Inspired by lace, NESpoon PL decorates: galleries, buildings, wood, you name it, all with beautiful patterns inspired by lace. Not only can the viewer suddenly admire the depiction of the beautiful pattern but it brings out the beauty of all that is around it.
During our time in Chicago, we came across the work of Arlene Linton who is also inspired by this textile. Simple and striking, her work is stunning and it is easy to see why her tutorials are so popular.
Just like these artists have shown, lace is not just for clothes and tablecloths but it can be used to create or enhance beauty absolutely anywhere. That's why we put together a kit that teaches anyone how to paint delicate lace patterns.
Using a liner brush and whatever colour paint you wish, you can learn simple techniques that look beautiful. Once you have mastered the Folk It patterns included in the box, there's nothing stopping you from designing your own.
Over the coming weeks, we will be posting projects and hints and tips to help you fall even more in love with this kit. More importantly, we want you to get in touch with us to let us know what you are creating with your Delicate Lace kit. Post your inspirational pictures on our Facebook page or send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We cannot wait to see what you have created,
