Daily Deviation

Given 2013-06-07
The suggester said: "Comet Moth, Silk Moth Series by ~CopperMoth is a beautiful combination of metal craft and silk fusion papermaking. The silk wings giving nod to the silk cocoon a Comet Moth emerges from once its metamorphosis from a caterpillar is complete." ( Suggested by ewm and Featured by Talty )

I just joined about an hour ago and I find your piece absolutely fascinating. May I ask?... Did you hand paint the silk after gluing it onto the copper? It's absolutely gorgeous.

No glue or painting on colour involved in the making of these moths. I grow the copper on the silk in a process called electroforming. It takes a lot of time and special perpetration.

I am flabbergasted and a bit speechless. Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation!

Because I had no idea that this happened it's going to take me a moment to read/reply to every one!
