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!
