Simply Luscious Tactile SILK

In readiness for a playday with a friend I prepared a sample to whet her appetite.

Last night I applied gutta to silk – colourless, black, and pearl.   These created these “stand-out” lines – the pearl ones in particular.

This morning the piece was dry so I heat set the silk and then applied turquoise, cerulean blue, turquoise, and paprika silk dyes.   

 A short time in the microwave (one that is dedicated to my fabric art work ) – one of these photo’s shows the steam rising. 

A quick rinse, and presto…..doesn’t the result speaks for itself?

Mmmmm….I see another visit to Silksational (in Sydney) to purchase more dyes from Sylvia ….first item listed on my  “to do’s” for 2011.

    Thanks Brenda for pointing out the problem. I have circumnavigated to fix it – in a “sortof” way. Working with silk fabric is an enchanting diversion from this sticky weather (and tiring) time of the year.
