There was little to no change in the dark velvets but they were what provided a bit of change in the lighter pieces. Even tho the results weren't anything to write home about I'm still glad to have tried this and it did soften up the velvet.
There was a little change to the tan, more change to the gold and rust color looks aged which I like. As you can see by the results there was no change in appearance to the darker colors.
Okay, here are the two antique rugs which I'm going to adapt to my two small projects. The one here I will probably try to channel the original hooker and hook in the straighted fashion she/he did. However, I will take a little creative license and darken the wool in the tail. I'm sure she just used what she had but I've more options than she did.
Have a great evening everyone.
