... or should that be twisted it! Remember the story of Goldilocks and the three bowl of porridge. Well this is nothing like that, ha ha. Well a bit, it's the story of the brunette and the three foundations. After my last post I went back to the box chart for fan papers and checked out the instructions for the orange foundation. Turns out it is a 1F + #1G, so a ratio of one silk thread to one gold thread for any non JE readers out there, so I thought I would give that a try to see what it looked like (sorry, no pic). Decided it wasn't robust enough and was still too stripey. So foundation number three was created - 3-1T + #1G - three threads twisted into one, including a gold thread. I made this twist really, really soft, and the gold thread I used has a red fleck to it which adds a little touch of extra colour. This worked very well and I decided to use this version of the foundation.
