The article offers insights about the idea of fluorescent braid in D. R. Wagner's "Fulfillment of Prophecy." Wagner found that the careful mixing of floss color selections with Krienik and Co.'s Balger blending filaments and braids develops two different images in the picture plane simultaneously. It is indicated that one image would be available in normal light and another image could be made available with the use of an ultraviolet light source. It is suggested that the integration of regular Balger colors with strands of the fluorescent filament in a braid would allow for more subtle effects in the work and open the surface up to further manipulation.
