This piece of zhuanghua satin applies golden flake-shaped threads as continuous latitudinal threads to weave the contour of all patterns, which is the so-called “outlining with golden threads”; meanwhile, round golden threads and threads of seven colors are used on the zhuanghua satin. Between the phoenix’s body and wings, there are bright but calm round golden threads shining, echoing the bright golden flake-shaped threads. There are up to seven colors in latitudinal threads; for the wings only, three colors, i.e. light blue, sky blue and light grey alternate to show the patterns, to form a harmonious tone together with the dark blue background. When the patterns are not shown, the colorful latitudinal threads are not cut off, floating on the backside. The clouds and peonies are “double-outlines” with golden flake-shaped threads and colorful threads, very delicately designed. Gold foil is pasted on paper, and then the paper is cut into thin threads less than 1mm wide, and therefore we get golden flake-shaped threads, with gold on one side and paper on the other. In order to make sure the gold side is upward, special techniques must be applied to place latitudinal threads on the satin. First get through all joints in a thin bamboo pole and put the thin gold fake-shaped threads into it, and then link the bamboo pole to the shed, press one gold fake-shaped thread and pull out the bamboo pole, and thus the gold thread can enter into the shed open and flat. Gold fake-shaped threads are applied throughout this piece of zhuanghua satin, which is quite a large workload.
