Hey Tonga Tiki!
Haven't tried it but google Edward Leetag-there might be some info there...
Also contact Heather Watts-she does gorgeous pieces on velvet! They Glow!
Also do a search here on TC as I'm sure there are probably a good handful of
artists who've taken the challenge! Try GROG too! He knows his ART!
Good luck! Share your Findings Here and we can start up an
American Velvet Art Association!

Hey Tonga Tiki,

What LLT said is right (except that it's Edgar Leeteg) on the money. This book....

is well worth picking up. You can usually find one on eBay for around $20.

Ole Edgar was a fascinating bloke and this book has tons of pictures and everything you need to know about the man too.

Love to see your paintings one day.
