Hand Painted Silk Scarves

Hand Painted One of a Kind Silk Originals By Cyn Mc
Handcrafted in the USA

In the Falland winter we are in full production and we list our Scarves in our 'StarlitSkies' ETSY shop... there are a few there now...

As a life long Artist some of my most favorite Mediums are watercolor, Pen and Ink (black and White), and Henna.
Now I am am mixing all that in the form of Silk Paintings, focusing on Scarves and wall hangings. So Here I am going to share with you my journey along the way as I learn, and discover new ways and techniques daily.
Everything I make is going up for sale on ETSY & ARTFIRE.com in our STARLITSKIES shop. Or you can contact me, and we can sell it to you via pay pal, or any credit card over the phone.
It is giving me so much joy and I feel my Life has opened up and bloomed in a brand new way! I am so Blessed and Grateful, especially when these new creations bring joy and Happiness to others!
Note if you call with a credit card I can give you 10% off... this avoids other fees from the other services, and I am happy to pass some savings on to you! We Love our Customers!

This is the scarf middle.

I want to offer $38.00 Silk Scarves: A great affect on the whole scarf, with something simple added to each end, something I can paint and complete within 2 hours each.
Here, on Scarf #5 & 6,  I was experimenting with the background first, trying to figure out how the dyes run together, when the silk is wet, and how fast I need to put the salt on before it dries in this Desert Town of Las Cruces, NM, that I live in. After I finished I thought a while about what could I put on top of these Scarves, and I remembered I had black Gutta/resist, what we use to paint the lines with. And I remembered how Some Tattoo flash of Roses, that are such black and white, are black lines and just a black shading, and so I tried it. Scarf #5, has the shading, and #6, I used no dye to shade, to see which I liked the best, and to see if just lines is enough, is ok... I like them both! The Black Gutta lines look a little shiny but it softens with wear, and remember to cover with a thin cloth when ironing with low heat... I would hand wash.

Wow, Abstract, Cubism, this one just blows my mind. And I giggle that my Art College Education showed up in this Scarf. I am not one for Cubism, but this scarf took on a life of its own, and I am so AMAZED! It took over 8 hours, plus the three hours we steam the silks in order to set the dyes. Sometimes I get a vision, or I dream of a scarf. Sometimes I stare at the scarf until something shows up, and in this case when I started painting Acorns and oak leaves, I kept seeing lines accross the scarf, and spirals, and each section had its own dance of colors bleeding into each other. Chiffon is like painting on Thick Panty hose, and it is very see through so the colors are enhanced by what's behind it. This is one of my favorites, and we will be making Silk Lamps with this Style, and we have taken this image to Zazzle, and have created so many products. They all blow me away with AWE! My Favorite is the Coofee Mugs with a maroon coating on the inside, and on the handle. The Fall colors POP!!!!
