Adding some shine

Starting out with the design elements calling for metallic thread, I stitched the outline and spokes of the angel's halo in basketweave and tent stitches with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #3221.

The angel's wings had been painted in three sections, like the previously stitched angel, but I was aiming for a different look.  So I used Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #001 in a Nobuko stitch and covered the wings completely.

So far, so good--now to give this angel a face and hairdo!

That's a great look for the wings--really looks like feathers.

I really like those wings, they do look like feathers.
