>Shading with Nymo

>

Last night, I finished beading around the windows of my beaded White House. I used the same twisted bugle beads for this, in white & gray. Interestingly, this worked out perfectly! The bugle beads were just the right length, and I had just enough white beads to do what I wanted to do!

You may have noticed that some of the curtains were made with size 15 gray seed beads. Also, if you look very closely, you will see that I used black Nymo thread on the center ‘Oval Room‘ section. The black thread makes the translucent white beads look gray! The reason I did this is because this part will not be out in the sun like the rest of the building is… I may add some more shading on this section as well, but that may require me to get some more of these twisted bugle beads… 😮
