  • Some friends have asked what I meant by the term “Deep Flagging”.

  • Born in a dance
    Through eyes connecting
    Something of a trance

    Longing for something yet unknown

    Gifts shared then passed along
    Masters on […]

  • This is a quick list of the acid dyes that work well for silk flag making.  More details to come. Dharma Trading Company: Hot Fuscia #620 Brilliant Kelly Green #627 Chartreuse #628 Brilliant Blue #623  (just ok) Dharma used to have a good yellow dye, called “dharma flourescent yellow”, but I’m not sure if it’s still available. Aljo: Flavine Yellow (good yellow) Rhodamine B  […]

  • Hi Chris,
    I usually prefer Habotai Silk, 8 mumme (mm), 45″ wide.   5 mm and 10 mm Habotai are also used frequently.  5mm is great for lightweight larger sized flags, and 10mm makes for heavier, more durable sets.
    I’ve also tried Charmeuse, Crepe de Chine, and Organza.
    Regards,
    Phillip

  • Phillip Bryan wrote a new post, Hot Pad 7 years ago

    Thumbnail These were made with the idea to create stacked disks using pleat ties. The areas where the pads overlap was the real tricky bit, but it came out pretty nice.

    The shape reminds me of a prickly pear cactus. Fun!
