2011-Sterling silver, disposable pipettes, coconut oil, oil-based food coloring, rubber o-rings, bass string.
Coconut oil solidifies at or below room temperature. When the collar is worn, the heat from the body liquefies the oil and it slowly bleeds down the torso. The oil and food coloring mixture starts out very opaque, and becomes more translucent as it thins and is absorbed through the skin. The total transformation can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the temperature of the wearer's skin and the environment they are in.
