Scarves to go

A stack of velvet scarves delivered today, thus a week
of manipulating, pole wrapping, and dye painting velvet
Rich jewel colours, very subtle colour blending. I find
it impossible to get a good picture of the dyed velvet,
suffice to say gorgeous!
Hey look, I've gone a bit technical. I took pix of velvet
dyed and undyed, then fiddled around in Illustrator.
I like the result, so I should do more of this!
I must make time to explore the wonders of Blogger

This is like the garments of angels on gothic paintings! Google pictures by Hugo van der Goes...

My attempts to take photos of the dyed velvet not good. To much glare. Perhaps I should take lessons.
I love the concept of angels garment - yes, I can see that now.

...hard to get the deliciousness of velvet in a still image.
