This class in silk scarf painting focuses on letting go of your inhibitions and allowing the silk fabric to guide you in your creation. Let's get started!
Choosing colors can be one of the hardest decisions. Once you have decided on your palatte,
attach the blank silk scarf to a frame using thumbtacks. Make sure it is evenly stretched and has no wrinkles. Each frame is made for a specific size scarf.
At this point you will need to have some idea as to what your design will be.
If you are going to draw a pattern, it must be done with a product called "resist".
Resist is a liquid that prevents the dye from flowing past a certain point. For this scarf Mary chose not to use resist.
You will begin with the background color. From there, blend in the other colors. Each color needs to dry completely in order to achieve the desired effect.
A second color is now being applied to the background. You can use as many colors as you wish .
