Ground: Silk on Linen Backing (Linen is used to back the silk, as the gold thread is heavy, and the linen provides extra strength and support)
Threads: Silk, Jap Gold

Leoba suggests to people starting their first goldwork project to avoid designs with multiple shapes like this, as the constant stopping and starting of the couching will make you quite frustrated.
