Here's how the yarn came out:
However, the silk ribbon was another matter. I had 1/8" wide and 1/4" wide ribbon on spools. I just kept unwinding and painting. This picture is the 1/4" wide. I like it and it was fun to do. I used regular textile paint. I need to iron it to see if it will be supple again. I don't really care if it softens or not because I'm just going to stitch it on an art quilt.
