Thanks, have fun. The basic spiral technique is Chinese staircase and I first watched a youtube video to see how it was done.

Thanks, I've seen both knitted and crocheted earplugs and loved them but I can't knit or crochet so had a go at this.

wicket-poo, yes my earplugs have the split, I used the whole floss bundle and pulled out a length of the whole cord from end to end then added approximately 6-7 times the length of the cord from the start of the split to the earbud. I tied the floss leaving the length next to the cord and started knotting over both the cord and floss. I ended up using 2 8m embroidery floss bundles for this, when I was about to run out I just tied the new bundle over the 2 bundles and cord, after a few knots I trimmed off the short floss and continued knotting as normal.
Here is a basic visual explanation, not sure if my instructions are overly clear lol.

I got sick of my ugly earplugs which were discoloured from various things like paint so I thought I'd cover them in embroidery floss. I thought this would be an hour job.... but no this took me 5 hours, I couldn't wait to stop lol.

Thanks Smiley

Thanks artzyfartzy, I quite like green myself too. This piece has been a massive challenge finding the right shades which compliment each other but all the hard work has really paid off, this is one of my favourite pieces so far.

kwality570 it is quite big, approximately 40cm (16in) wide and 80cm (32in) tall. The pattern took quite a long time especially because I will do 2-3 coats of the black so its crisp.

jemimah thanks Smiley

Hey, has been awhile since I posted, been busy with so many other things going on. This is my most recently finished painting, been awhile since I painted too but hoping to have a few commission pieces to do soon.



Thanks for looking Smiley
