The Pompeo Batoni portrait of Francesco Benaglio 1757"
Gorgeous scarf! Exact reproduction of the original in silk with excellent details.
I like the weight of these silk stockings. After several wearing and washings, they still hold their color and shape and are a dream to wear, summer or winter. They're a perfect thickness.
Everything we make comes to us in its most basic form. All of the scarves, stockings, silk or cotton come to us white. We wash everything and then we sort it into groups for dying. This helps keep colors stay truer by batch. Then we set up the dye pots . One for silk and one for cotton stockings and scarves. Each scarf and stocking is dyed and rinsed until the water is clear. Then we put them into a pot that has a colorfast product in it to help each item maintain their color longer than a regular dye would provide. They are then washed, dried, and ironed.
Our boxes come to us as brown paste board boxes. First we will paint and seal the inside of the box to add additional strength and water protection to them, then the marbling process starts. We must first make two things carrageenan water which is dried and crushed seaweed added in specific amounts to water and blended. Then you have to wait for 6 or more hours for the bubbles to dissipate. Then we make alum water mix alum into water and stir. Next we set up the 36x36" tray and add the carrageenan water to it. We sponge the alum water onto 36" square pieces of velum paper.
Next we add color to the water and create patterns. They will be pebbles, feather,parallel, French swirl, Spanish style and many other patterns all of which were used from the 17th century and forward. We lay the paper onto the surface of the water until the pattern shows and then slide it out of the tray. Viola, a new and wonderful piece of art to cover a box no matter the shape.
