Silk fusion with tussah silk noils

  1. WOW! What I am seeing are beautiful.
    What I am wondering is: In “embedding” elements, do you cover those elements very thinly with silk fibers, not at all? How well does this technique work with dyed fibers? I would guess that the darker the silk, the less the “embedded” elements show up?
    I look forward to your response. Thanks

    • Thank you Suzanne! Yes you will need to put a thin layer of soy silk fiber on top of the embedded element. The textile medium then acts as a “glue” to keep it in place once it dries. For a darker silk foundation, I like to add metallic elements such as yarn and flakes to make the piece “shine”.
