Birds on a Wire

I've been looking at how the wax is pooling up on the thread or copper wire. Reminded me again of the birds on a wire. The subtlety of the dots on the line.

I found this perfect photo, by Gooling Birds on a wire . Et voila.

This is the sort of thing I'm trying to achieve by dipping thread into wax. Dots and stripes all in one. I know it's subtle, and really you can only see it on the shadow.

Yes, I see it in the shadow. I almost took a photo of the ship masts all through Port Townsend boat yard and harbor. A lot of stripes there. I'll wait for the birds on the masts and send it to you.
