Silk Painting: Scarves

Nan Travers

Painting silk is an exciting and magical process. First silk is stretched on a frame and then dyes are applied using paint brushes and other techniques. The colors develop right before your eyes along the beautiful surface of the silk. You will learn different application techniques, first with a sampler and then with scarves and/or fabric. Students will be mixing their colors from the primary colors and black and will complete the process by steam setting the dyes. All work is done on silk provided by the instructor and each student will make two scarves.
