Michael's Enamels (4)

I had a thought in the middle of the night. Would the enamels have shown off better if the weaving had been one colour only, say black - or red or yellow? So I used Photoshop on the final photo. Black is the best of them but it is pretty lifeless - turns it nearly monochrome. One problem is that the grey silk pockets do tone down the appearance of the enamels. 

So yes multicolour was the way to go.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
