Verdigris- Pigments- Merino, Sari Silk, Mulberry Silk & Llama. 100g


 Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

Verdigris appears naturally on exposed copper, but in the past techniques were developed to speed up the process to create the pigment. This involved using acid, on the surface of the metal, but the acid in turn would eat away at the surface to which the pigment was applied. In turn the acid and the copper could also react with other pigments. The lack of good quality green pigments meant artists had to carry on using it until the rise of synthetic colours. 

Colour Description- Jade Green with streaks of aubergine, and ochre brown. 

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.
