This is the progress I've made on the Egyptian Sun God this past month. I'm having a great time doing this! I've tweaked the pattern quite a bit as far as technique and color go.
The pattern actually had no color except for the gold and black. I added the purple (what other color would it be!?)
The gold thread is not so easy to work with but I like the effects.
I'm couching the wall design. I love couching and am happy to have the perfect opportunity to use it.
Of course, none of the outlining is complete and the crown piece isn't done either. It's definitely going to have beads! It's a fairly large piece, the design being something like 10-12 inches tall. Don't forget either, I'm doing it on 40 count linen! Click on any of the photos to get a closer look.
One other thing....no comments from the peanut gallery on his "elephant foot". I'm absolutely sure I can repair it!
