|Belleza with Her Spider and Spider Web|
My Belleza has a spider painted on her chin and a spider web on her right cheek, so I thought I'd stitch those as well so you could have Arachnids Everywhere. The chin spider was easy and quick and looks quite nice, if you are a Day of the Dead skeleton, that is. But the spider web gave me fits!
Can you see the spider web? No? I can't either! The silver threads just disappear. I am going to have to rip out the part of the web I have stitched and use another color. What you see on the left side are all the threads I laid out to see what shows up well. I like the pastel pinks and blues and violets, but they disappear on the white background just like the silver thread does. I'd really prefer navy but it won't work with the other colors on her face. I finally choose the boring black thread as it will both show up and work well with the colorful tattoos on her head. Oh, well, there will be plenty of color on Belleza in other places and a spider needs to be able to find their web.
Is there a glow in the dark thread in black?
