Anodising Aluminium

Jane Adam- anodised aluminium

I started thinking about a dress that is integrated- jewellery and fashion together. I don't want a dividing line between the two. After talking to Nokwanda about the technical difficulties of combining metal with fabric. The main problem would be the weight of the metal on the fabric. And since I want to use smaller elements to cover the body, if these pieces move they might not be seen the way I want them to. I'm going to have to think of a dress design that will show the elements best. So I'm thinking of lighter metals like aluminium. Aluminium can also be anodised and gives many colours.

So here goes the ride. Any help with anodising would be greatly appreciated!!
