Silk painting - scarves
« on: February 26, 2013, 03:38:40 AM »
Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you my passion: silk painting. I love it and I'm trying to make my living by selling hand painted natural silk scarfs.

I'm always looking for new challenges and inspirations, so please feel free to comment!

What do you think?

Your work is beautiful! How long does it take, start to finish, to create one?

MarilynKelleyArt: after making some sketches for the pattern I start working on the lineart (these white or black lines you see on the scarf) which takes me about 2-3 hours. Then it needs to dry out (about 2 hours) . Painting takes about 6-10 hours, depending on the details. Then paint needs to dry out (it takes 24 hours), and then I fix paint on the silk (2 hours).... sooooo it's a long process but really rewarding one :D I simply love painting silk!oh, and heres another one :D you can find it on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/125106329/silk-scarf-trees-in-blue-hand-painted?

thank you all so much :)
there's another one done for a friend! She loves polish Art-Nouveau artist S. Wyspianski so I took inspiration from his project. Hope you'll like it!
