The petite treasure braids look good and I've also looked at Krienik? I think - they stock it at spotlight but it looks very fine compared to the thick stupid tinsel stuff...I've already done a section of his neck in the stupid bronze metallic - when you guys have switched have you pulled out all other stitches and started again?
I LOVE that chart! It is gorgeous!
I've only used Kreinik metallics and blending filaments. I use smaller lengths as the metallics do fray after a bit. The blending filaments often have to be used with a strand or two of floss, or just to go over an area on top of full x's.
I've heard a lot of good things about Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure braids, but have not used it yet nor have I used DMC metallics.
I have found that for me thread heaven helps a lot!
