The Golden Hours Verdigris
The Golden Hours are our classic, earliest style that has remained a favorite and is still evolving in its many color variations.
Verdigris or ‘green of Greece’ is a dazzling form of metallic pigmentation used since the Middle Ages to give metals a bluish-green patina through a process called atmospheric oxidation. My technique involves combining sea salt and natural oxidants to achieve a unique shade.
This new version of The Golden Hours is available in solid natural white, turmeric or madder root dyed horsehair. As always, materials ethically sourced from artisans of Caddo Nation.
** Please note this is a hand-dyed item so variations in tone and color are normal.
