DIY Silk Scarf Hand Painted
I’m crazy about silk painting and wanted to share some of my creations with you! Hope you’ll like it! This one is called ‘Pansy flowers’ – it’s made on a natural Italian silk scarf. You just need a special type of paint for silk painting. Painting on silk is much like painting on canvas with waterpaint (but the paint is usually thinner, more delicate, so the painted material won’t become stiff).

You will need:
- Wooden frame
- Dry silk
- Three-prong silk tacks
- Batik wax
- Silk colors
- Fine line applicators or Tjanting tools
Stretch the dry silk on a wooden frame (made a little bigger than the silk) and pin it to the frame with three-prong silk tacks. The next step is to apply the pattern. We can draw with pencil directly on the material or copy paper patterns.
