Before I was able to put the gauze samples onto the loom, I had to get this project off the loom. The colored warps that I am spranging were a painted skein with some copper metallic sparkle. It was something I bought on impulse years back, and had just been sitting around looking pretty.
I saw an article recently, probably in Handwoven magazine, of a way to make a painted skein work like a painted warp. You make the warp in a circular manner using a multiple of the skein length. Here it is on my warping board. I used two repeats of the painted pattern.
Here's a bit of the finished fabric before I cut it up to make it up into a top to wear to Convergence. So if you're coming to Convergence 2014 in Providence next month, look for me wearing this!
