Hand Dyed and Painted Silk Scarf Multicolor Petite Wrap, Unique Scarf, Artisan Handmade, Jossiani.
I called the happy color combination Multicolor, Gems. There is cobalt indigo and royal blue, teal cyan, pink fuchsias and wine, and beautiful red. It also has black accents. This scarf is ready to ship.
It is a signed piece of silk art. It has an abstract design of red and crimson pink stars with a cobalt background. it is 17.5" x 59". The scarf edge is machine hemmed with a soft cording stitch.
I used pure natural silk Habotai 8mm to hand paint this scarf. It is a non transparent silk. I chose this silk as I wanted the edge too have enough "body" and therefore stability. It is machine rolled and hemmed with a fine cording stitch that ripples and flutters the edges slightly, giving the wrap a soft feminine look. Dry clean only.
I "concoct" my own permanent silk dyes, and hand paint with them on 100% Pure Silk. I do my best to describe colors and try to include photos under different lights to give buyers a better idea of the color combinations. I add new combinations every season, and match colors to fashion trends.
The scarf is hand painted with multiple layers of silk dyes. I allow different drying time and curing after each layer according to humidity in the environmental air at the time of painting the said layer. Please note that I do not have a hygrometer, and I do that intuitively. Results depend on the time of day and season of the year, and the climate where I live has a lot to do with the textures I get. The third layer is hand painted with small brushes and with dry brush accents. This is a unique technique I have developed over the years.
