Finally!! My name in lights!!
Here's one of the pages of the magazine. That's the color-chart I painted for myself.
It helps me to decide on my color-schemes.
A corner of my studio and the art supplies - that I love!!
Trying not to use the same photos that are in the magazine,
I'll give you some of the steps of silk-painting.
To begin, I hand-washed the silk to remove the sizing.
Then the piece was hung to dry.
Next it was attached to the stretcher bars.
And the design was sketched on.
Then it was outlined with a resist.
The butterflies are the "Super Raw Life Magazine" logo.
(And an all-around great gal!!)
It was only fitting that the design should be raw food, greens, veggies and fruit.
Many, many hours later, the scarf was completed. And I was happy with the results.
(I'm my worst critic.)
That makes the colors wash-fast.
After the scarf has been steamed, the colors are even brighter. Love that!
The last step was ironing. (I wish everything was that easy to iron!)
14" x 70",
Crepe De Chine silk scarf.
Here is another photo of my friend, Michele, and her original scarf.
(The photo was taken by the talented, Bayli Shelton.)
