Fly By Posting

Just a quick update.
Work in progress, just a little bit of sealing to do with this. Sari silk, cotton lace, wire wrapping with seed beads and handmade head pins by moi.






More sari silk with brass choker from http://www.etsy.com/shop/CalliopesAttic. This was lovely and shiny to start with but I played around with light etching to detail the surface, then some liver of sulphur applied with an old paint brush. Check AnvilArtifacts blog on the blog roll for lots of patina recipes. Also Fancifuldevices has a neat tutorial on oxidising.

  3. Your ability to use colour - combining fiber, metal and other textures never ceases to amaze me. I am very jealous but in a good way. Kate xoxo
