I pretty much followed the colors Janet Perry gave in her instructions, but I did add a green (DMC561) --- the color that the dead Osiris is often painted in tombs. My Lapis-blue is DMC30820, a rayon with some shine, and my gold is DMCE3852. Other colors were a rust red (DMC 355), an earthy brown (DMC 435), and a turquoise-frit (DMC 959). I used DMC 301 for the "border" and DMC blanc, ecru and 4150 for the background.
This one made me hunt for all the great books and guide leaflets we picked up on a Nile cruise. great memories!
