Sacrificial Thread on Tiger Wrap

Can you use a sacrificial thread on the bottom layer? The blank I am using is a awesome green color, I was going to use black and purple on the bottom with 1 Sacrificial thread to expose the blank. After epoxy I was going to use the same threads but have two sacrificials, leaving purple. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If you want the tiger to show movement and really pop,you need more contrast on the bottom wrap. I don't see your colors providing that definition. Yellow or white will do your end result more justice. Metallic silver or gold can be used in lieu of yellow or white.

I will switch the black for white, but can I use a sacrificial thread on the bottom layer to show the color of the blank? Or will this create problems I can't predict?

John you can wrap with a sarcrificial on the bottom, but you need contrast. After the bottom is finished, (however many coats) you can wrap over it with different colors, removing the sac thread to expose what the final result will be between each and choose whichever combination you want.
