I used half-hitched .8 gold metallic and satin stitched for the glow spots.
I have the material for a soft scroll, and this site Japanese scrolls gave me ideas on how to assemble it as a scroll. The wikipedia site Kakemono showed me something I didn't know before - that the top section (Ten) should be longer than the bottom section (Chi). From the picture it looks that the Chi is 2/3 the length of the Ten. I wonder how precise the proportion needs to be. Hmmm, more googling needed.
