Hand painted silk scarf wallhanging abstract waterfall blue white painting hand dyed #S193

$ 50.00
I hand painted this silk scarf or wall hanging using water-based fiber reactive silk dyes. The abstract waterfall design was created using the serti method of applying a resist to contain the spread of the dyes, then painting the dyes directly on the beautiful silk. After painting, I steamed the silk to set the dyes and make them color fast (some discharge of color may occur during washing). I then rinsed the scarf to remove excess dye and the resist, restoring the original texture, drape and sheen of the silk. Tie this one of a kind original painting around your neck as a scarf or display it on the wall. Optional wooden magnetic frame as shown is available for an additional $20.
