Where does the silk from the silk worm come out of?

Silkworms produce silk when they grow from worms, into their adult stage: a moth.

In between these stages, the silkworm spins a single thread of silk around itself, which eventually hardens into a cocoon to protect it during this transformation. This silk is excreted from the salivary glands.

The worm is boiled alive during this stage before the silk is removed. If it were allowed to grow and emerge from the cocoon, it would break the cocoon in the process, making it less valuable for silk production (and useless for high quality garment).

The silk itself can also be loosen by soaking water. which will loosen up the "gum". Labors use a brush to push the cocoon up and down until one of the loose end is attack to the brush.

Why do you use a melamine paint for the bathroom?

Melamine paint is very expensive as you know and they do come in colors. You don't have to use Melamine and oil based paint is just as good (although a little smelly.) Melamine smells terrible anyway. Oil based should be used (be sure if there is any paint in your bathroom already that it's oil based and not latex. If latex, then you have some sanding to do. You sand to rough up the surface. It's also good to put a white primer on the walls after sanding so you oil base will stay on properly. Oil base and Melamine are used because of the dampness of the bathroom and usually this is also used in kitchens. My husband only paints the tub surround with Melamine and the rest of the white woodwork with oil based paint. Marcy

How is silk used?

Answer:

It is used in clothing, yarns, decorative textiles, bed linens and fabric.

Silk's good absorbency makes it comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. It is often used for clothing such as shirts, blouses, formal dresses, high fashion clothes, negligees, pyjamas, robes, skirtsuits, sun dresses and kimonos.

Silk's elegant, soft luster and beautiful drape makes it perfect for many furnishing applications. It is used for upholstery, wall coverings, window treatments (if blended with another fiber), rugs, bedding and wall hangings.

While on the decline now, due to artificial fibers, silk has had many industrial and commercial uses; parachutes, bicycle tires, comforter filling and artillery gunpowder bags.

From the blackpowder era, until roughly World War I, early bulletproof vests were made from silk.

A special manufacturing process which removes the outer irritant sericin coating of the silk makes it suitable as non-absorbable surgical sutures. This process has also recently led to the introduction of specialist silk underclothing for children and adults with eczema where it can significantly reduce itch.

Silk cloth is also used as a material on which to write and paint, and some silk fabric can be expensive.

Flower Arranging
Caterpillars
Silk

How can you make a silk arrangement?

The silk arrangement is simpler to make than the live arrangement. Choose your container and purchase a firm base. This base is generally styrofoam which holds the wire stems in place. Gather your supplies: pliers, heavy sissors or wirecutters, container, base, flowers, something to hold your base in the container. Generally, the base is glued into the container, but it can be secured by florist's tape or poster putty. Since the flowers are made with wire, they make smaller holes in the styrofoam. Select your favorite flower and put it in the center of the foam. This is your line flower. The line flower is the one that your eye catches when you look at the arrangement. From this flower (the focal point), the rest of the arrangement is made. Place another flower about half-way between the line flower and the container pointing to yourself. Do this with the focal flowers on either side. At this point you will have four flowers in front of you. If this arrangement is to be a centerpiece, then you need to do it on the other side as well. Now that you have your line flowers in place, fill in with lesser flowers. For instance, you have carnations as line flowers, you fill in the blank space with daisies. Add accent blooms such as tiny spray roses, then put in the greenery. Take your time because (1) you have to live with this for a while and (2) the product does not die, so you can rearrange to suit yourself. Study pictures of arrangement that you like. You can copy them in silks for yourself. Simply bring the picture to the silk display and select the flowers to use. One suggestion is to keep your colors to two colors for the blooms. This make the arrangement less distracting and more pleasing to the eye. Finally, practice, practice, practice. If you don't like the arrangement, redo it! The foam will take re-placement several times before it breaks down. Have fun with your silks and bend and shape to suit yourself.
