Soft Silk Chiffon Scarf hand-painted with subtle pastel shades in a lovely floral design. Measures 14" W x 58" L.
I use traditional French silk dyes that require steam-setting after painting to bring out the lovely sheen and hand of the silk and it also makes them hand-washable or dry clean. The silk is first stretched on a special stretcher, then resist is added if needed for design. I paint with artist's brushes using a combination of wet on dry and wet on wet techniques, producing a one-of-a-kind scarf with a painterly look showing the touch of the artist's hands.
Hand-painted scarves make a lovely gift for someone or yourself!
