Candied Fabrics Lesson 5 : Assembling the Candiotic Table
Here you can see all the swatches, pressed, trimmed, and laid out on the black kunin felt background hanging on my design wall. This is the best I can do for a photo in my work area, as I just can't get far enough away from it to include the whole thing -- until it's fused, stabilized and mobile. At this point, all the swatches are pinned to the backing until I decide if I want to stick with the black background.
The black makes the colors pop, that's for sure. But then color is relative to what's around it. This picture is not true to the real-life colors either. It's difficult to get a good picture in that room with no natural light.
By contrast, this is Candy's original table with a white background. These colors are vivid on the white background.
