Mixed media painting with pouring medium

Hello everyone, as you know I’ve been playing around with pouring medium. I recently made a piece that has inclusions of metallic embroidery thread below:
I don’t know if it’s really noticeable at first glance. But as you know, one of the things I like most about working with pouring medium is the ease of incorporating layers. Layers make the piece more interesting and rich by revealing visual motifs piecemeal. The more you look, the more you find. I guess that’s true for most things but with pouring medium, it’s a three-dimensional effect through transparent and or translucent medium.

Below are more close-ups:
Above you can see the embroidery thread embedded in the medium of the painting.

I’d like to mention that sometimes the pieces are hard to photograph because of the glare from the shiny surface. And that the pieces are usually better in real-life.
