Commissioned piece is finished
Several weeks ago i was approached by a woman to hand dye a large wrap scarf to be worn over a black outfit on a trip she is planning soon. The color palate was the browns and coral/orange family. I ordered a large piece of silk, and carefully strategized the pattern… creating a large medallion in the center of the scarf, with radiating patterns from that center. And i am very excited at the outcome. Here are a few photos of the work in progress. My camera captured not so true of colors…. the “yellows” are actually a beige/brass color. There is one large medallion at the center, with a cascade of small floral forms leading to the outer edges. If you wrap it as a cape these trail along the arm beautifully. These are photos before I added a copper resist to accentuate the pattern. I will be excited to see my customer’s response. We are supposed to meet later today. I found a lovely vintage cigar box to package the scarf… it will be a keepsake packaging. Love that idea. More photos to follow.
