Reply To: Questions, Comments, or Photographs for Discussion on 3 Braids with Makiko Tada


Domo Arigato Gozaimasu Tada Sensei for showing me some new, interesting, fun braids. Made me think!!!
Since I’m a “rogue” braider I don’t use silk and like to experiment and “play”.
For the braid I used a Dyed Dreams rainbow dyed rayon for color play and a bright blue shiny rayon. The 1st 6 inches showed me that my Dyed Dreams was too think to show off the difference in the two opposing colors and I wasn’t getting the twist effect. Cut some out and “ah yes”.
Then, after awhile, and my brain/hands “got it” (sorta) I decided to play with switching colors. Interesting in that the Dyed Dreams vs. blue rayon gives a different effect in look of the braid. I also played with F moves to get color change.
Again, Domo Arigato for this new design. Who needs to play computer games for an aging brain when you can play with kumihimo!!!!
