Two New Scarves

I just completed two new handpainted silk scarves and will post them at my Etsy shop post haste. They were both white to begin with...

Handpainted crepe de chine scarfThe "black" one is crepe de chine, and was dyed, discharged, and overdyed a couple of times, then wrapped for arashi and embellished with metallic paint.

Handpainted chiffon scarf

The one above is chiffon, painted randomly, then embellished with metallic paint.

Other than these scarves and a bit of weaving, today was one of those less-than-stellar days in terms of motivation and energy. I'm glad I have a lot of irons in the fire, so that when I'm not in the mood to tackle large projects, I can still be productive at something!

A beautiful scarf. I especially like the addition of the gold paint. It really brings it to life.
