Not the best choice for a scarf as they only really show up on one side. Will be great for some other applications though.
Then beavering away with the Inktense pencils. I wasn't crazy about all the coloring lines that resulted, so out with the Inktense blocks and much mixing, rubbing and blending and it's more to my liking.
I think I will use the blocks more in future, but the pencils are great for detail. Once I got to the background it seemed much too expensive to use the Inktense so out with the Dynaflow and salt.
How I wish Procion dyes could replicate this effect! But once the Dynaflow started its old abrading tricks I remembered why I switched to Procion.
The abrasion marks work with the antique look of the scarf, luckily.
Designs loosely based on Jacobean embroidery.
