Default Re: 'Merica!

Actually thee color preserver lengthens the threads and things start to move. Had there been an underwrap you almost certainly would have been OK. Stuff probaly started to move because you started the preserver at one end, things got out of whack pressure-wise had with no traction to keep things from sliding around.....

If you noticed on swirlchasers wraps, even though he is doing a closed wrap, he's doing an underwrap. When you have that many threads there gets to be a lot of pressure going on.

One more thing. On a real black background like that you should use NCP thread and keep the color preserver to a minimum. You can get 'ghosting' for lack of a better word when you soak black thread.
