I took a silk painting class taught by Brenda Campbell, fellow artist at Grasshopper Gallery. I could see getting into this new textile art, as it was a ton of fun!
However - I choose to mbrace the bleeding - perfection is so overrated. Also - no two scarves will ever be the same, one of the best things about handcrafted vs. manufactured *anything*!!
On this, my second scarf, I concentrated on figuring out the resist a little better.
The scarf is still covered with salt, which causes the wonderful watercolour effects. Great chemical reaction when the scarf is wet... you see, art is science too!
Of course I put dragonflies on the scarves - shocking I know. Next step, setting the dye, then this is ready to wear. I would love to do more of these to be able to share at the Grasshopper Gallery!
