Beside t-shirts I also create one of a kind silk scarves with original designs. First I dye the silk scarf with acid dyes and then create a linoleum type stamp using blue insulation foam board. A wood burning tool is used to carve the design into the foam board. Then a discharge paste mixed with vat dyes is used to print my design .The scarf is then steamed to activate the discharge paste and set the dyes. This scarf has a leaf motif in gold (deep yellow) and turquoise. Where the colors overlap it is kind of a blue green color. The hems are hand rolled and sewn with 100% silk thread. I hand washed my scarves in warm water and the lightly steam press. The colors are luscious.
