Re: Working with metallic threads
is good, don't go above 15". Metallic thread has a habit of knotting,
and can be stiff, depending on if you are using blending filament or
pure metallics. I know some people like to strip the carrier threads
out of blending filament, but I do not. I relsolve the issues with
filament by keeping my lengths short.
Another idea when using blending filament. You can vary the final
looks by either stitching the filament on top of the standard cotton
floss, giving a 'wet' look to the area, or you can add it to the
floss, giving a much more sublte look. I have actually varied it w/in
a single peice in order to highlight different areas.
Drop a note if you have amy more questions.
