For the try of my newly arrived Pearsall's silk floss I chose to make a miniature pillow with Pansies.
I can't put it together yet since, as you can see, there is still a lot of room left for the experiments, :)))
As I said in my previous post, I didn't purchase a big variety of colors, and only violet colors to try a new design of Pansies. For this dollhouse miniature pillow I used 3 types of threads: Pearsall's (for the petals), DMC cotton (leaves) and Gutermann silk for the background.
I started experimenting with 40 count silk gauze. Pearsall's silk floss seems to be thicker than DMC and still gives nice coverage on 40 count.
Because of this difference, it gives a nice 3D effect of the petals of Pansies that I haven't expected. I tried to take the pictures as close as possible for you to see the difference:
Definitely, when you touch the surface of the future pillow, you can feel it, :))
Now I will try Pearsall's silk on 49 count.
See you soon,
