Green is such a wonderful colour for harmonising and balancing the heart energy so wearing this unique silk will be a tonic for your heart chakra.
This one was a pure joy to create. I started by wet sculpting the silk into and adding the selection of green dyes. This first layer was steam fixed for 3 hours. Then a whole layer of wax was added, taken off the frame and cooled in the fridge. Next it was restretched and had another layer of dye painted on. After intensive ironing to remove most of the wax, the silk was then rolled up again in paper for a second steam bath before being thoroughly washed and ironed.
Here you see the final result. I wrote a detailed blog post showing the whole process for this piece. Follow this link to see the photos : Chrysocolla Silk Scarf
This is a beautifully long scarf measuring approx 45cm x 180cm (18″ x 72″) and is made of 100% habotai silk painted with French silk dyes and using soya wax as a resist.
The original piece sold after I shared the first photos, but if you would like me to create one of these for you, just order it by clicking on this item. I will be using the same dye colours and silk but the final outcome will result in a completely unique silk scarf especially for you.
