No surprise I'm noticing petals and reflected pattern as I'm continuing to explore itajime and got a few more shapes to use. I am noticing putting more care into it - even though the opening of the silk is still a revelation because I'm never sure how well the pattern will come out or how the colours will blend and how they will all work together.
Here I have used two hearts - you may be able to see the slightly lighter glow of the inner one. The design is fairly crisp throughout the length of this, so I'm improving on that. I am thinking I really do need to get the other primaries of Colorhue dyes, because their simplicity would be a real asset to this kind of exploration.
