Hi,
No, the motifs are made with a thin gold thread, and outlined with a thicker one. I am sure the thicker is couched, but the solid areas i think is worked in satin stitch.

  Wouldn't it make more sense to lay the gold and couch it?  That is the way it was often done.  It would still be in straight lines.

    Hi,
    I have had a request of making a gentlemans waistcoat embroidered in real gold thread. The pattern would be satin stich.
    I have never tryed to make satin stitch with gold thread so i would like to ask if any here has tryed it. Is it difficult and is it very late?
    The gentleman wants the embroidery made on a silk rips.
