Silk Painting Basics with Karen Snow

Explore the exciting world of painting designs on a luxurious Habotai silk scarf.  If you like beautiful colors, that’s all the artistic ability you need – the technique itself is remarkably simple to do.  Using dyes instead of paint keeps the softness in the silk:  the non-toxic dyes are formulated to react with the protein fibers of the silk, creating abstract patterns as the dye is carried along the silk fibers.  No two designs are ever the same.  This is instant gratification:  your lovely new fashion accessory is washable and will be ready to wear home.  Wear old clothes!  (All supplies are included).
