Share-- henna on silk and skin

I finally figured out how to get good results with henna on silk, and I was so excited about it, I just wanted to share.  After struggling with the henna wicking badly and ruining my design, I finally ordered some sizing designed for silk dyeing.  It worked beautifully (there's still a slight halo around the designs like one usually gets on cotton, but so light it's barely noticable) and it was so quick and easy, I can't wait to do more.

Here's the scarf, all washed and ready to wear:

and just for fun, here's a phoenix/lotus design I took from a 13th century Mongol ceramic tile.  It's the most glitter I ever used-- it's hard to tell from the picture, but in the sun I looked like a disco ball. (I'm still trying to decide if that's a bad thing.)
