The sun peeked out so I ran outside and got a few more shots of the Zigged Wing in progress.
There are a few test sections you can see, like the small band of mixed colour at the edge of the blue point. I always swatch if I have questions, and it can be done directly onto a piece in progress, or on a maquette.
I’ve just begun to raise a third set of peaks at the edge of the hot side. This is done by suddenly substituting an increase for a decrease in the Rick-Rack. If you look below, at the far right peak (edge of the frame) you can see that until this round, the red peaks came down to normally decreasing Rick-Rack segments.
But for this pass, this peak-building pass, when I come to the crotch of the beads, instead of skipping over in a decrease, I will add two gold beads, as I did on each other point and crotch in the line. Thus will begin a third set of peaks.
I can make that new mountain range any height, any colour I want.
I’m planning a sort of snap-together box clasp for it- I’ll fill in this triangular section completely, and snap the matching unit on the other side right into it. I like the soft plastic dressmaker’s snaps for this, as large as I can fit on the piece.
