About Silk Painting
Hand painting silk scarves is meticulous, unforgiving, and involved. If a scarf has an intricate design, I have to plan first to get started on a scarf. Sometimes I draw with resist on a blank scarf. Sometimes, I dye a silk scarf first. It really depends on how I want my silk scarf to look. Painting larger silk wrap shawls adds more dimension to the work because of their size. I love using not only silk dyes but also different kinds of dyes and silk paints. Possibilities are endless! I am always inspired with a new design to put on my silks. I love painting my silk scarves and silk shawls and do so everyday!

The process of Silk Painting
There are many stages, starting with pre-washing the blank silk scarves, silk wraps and silk shawls. Then the silk is stretched on a frame with tiny-clawed hooks. The silk is primed and prepared in order to receive specially formulated French silk dyes. The silk dyes will become molecularly bonded to the silk once steamed. The steaming process requires extensive preparations, calculations and the huge silk steamer. After steaming, assuming there are no mishaps, the silk is again washed at least twice. The result is unique, incredibly beautiful, heirloom quality work of art.
