the resist failed to hold back the paint!
This was a fun experiment, though not 100% successful. I overdid it on the smallest tree on the right. Earlier, when applying the Presist there, I had problems getting it to flow in a smooth, thin line. The resulting blobs meant that after rinsing out the Presist, the white areas to be thread-painted were much wider than in the other two trees.
And after this experiment, I realized that the scale of the trees was all wrong. So it's back to the drawing board.
