[HNW] liquid "embroidery" --anyone tried this?

Has anyone tried to use those liquid "embroidery"' pens?? I think they are 
usually the brand "Aunt Martha". One gets a special cardboard circle backing 
to absorb excess liquid, I think.

I'm toying with the idea of using them to do heraldic "embroidered" emblems 
to sew all over an SCA overgown. I seem to recall one plate from Scheuette 
showing a medieval overgown (male? female?) with heraldic motif badges. IFIC 
they were eagles???

The idea of doing satin stitch Catherine Wheels on a zillion badges to sew 
onto a gown is not exactly appealing...

Where are those professional embroiderers when you want them? Or a team of 
personal female attendants with nothing to do all day.....
