As it usually happens, I fool around with new ideas, sometimes, more then actually looming! This is precisely the case on a Delica 11/0 Silver Metallic looming I having created.
The look of 'total silver' can't be beat! It almost looks like a 'mesh of sterling jump rings', from distance. Or, a silver fabric even.
But, for this particular looming I decided to warp with a different thread, then usual. I used a reasonably priced thread, Dandyline© in .20mm, white. It is a 'near zero stretch' thread that has a feel of nylon to it. What impressed me more then anything is how it allows for creating 'ruffles'!
The loomed piece alone, using this thread, is very supple and feels like a swatch of fabric. This is how I thought about trying similar methods of manipulating this section of loomed beads much like a swatch of fabric.
This is truly one idea I will include in my personal 'Looming Journal'. I see some great design ideas!
