A quick question.
I know many of the ways to stiffen tatting.
in the post below about my angel, I mentioned that I would have to make different wings because of the weight of the beads.
I was showing my work to some friends of ours when they were over on sunday, and the gentleman suggested that I get some lacquer and use that to stiffen both the bell and the wings.
he stated that instead of dulling the beads as the above list of stiffeners would do, it would shine the tatting as well.
This would definitely stiffen the work.
has anyone tried this?
