The Copper Project – Stage Two

It appears that vinegar was the answer.  Two days later and there is some  colour in some areas of the fabric.

The weather has been very hot so I  am applying more vinegar every couple of days. This next photo is another two days later. The colour is actually bright turquoise, although still only in some sections of the fabric.

    This is looking really promising! I wonder if the colour will change with pH? Maybe wash in a neutral solution rather than an alkaline one?

    I have left my piece of silk on for a bit longer, but Louise has now removed hers. So look forward to seeing the results.
