I am a daily reader of the Orchid Forum and a newbie hobbiest to
metal working jewelry. I purchased the wonderful book “Textile
Techniques in Metal” by Arline M. Fisch and am attempting to weave
in the Soumak technique.
Does anyone know if it is necessary to compress each line of weft as
it is added and if so, with what tool? Are there any tips to keeping
the design even? I have read the “Introduction to Weaving with Sheet
and Wire” by Barbara Berk but need a little more instruction.
Thanks so much in advance.
