Thread: Mating color silk with other colors

  1. #1

    Default Mating color silk with other colors

    Have FG post her new discovery. Maybe not new but cool. winding a blue thread base, then putting yellow silk over it. Crazy chirono.
    Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...

    Things have been a little touchy since I got back. Logging on and no forum portal to find stuff......................

    Weird, I posted to a thread called Buggers and the post ended up here..........................

    That does sound good.

    I tie a lot of soft hackles with Pearsall's primrose silk and when it's wet, it definitely takes on a translucent yellow-green color. The blue thread base sounds to me like it should create an even more "insect green" translucent body. I'll be trying it soon!
