Work in progress: silk painting

Still working on this piece. Hand embroidery takes a long time.

Various pieces and types of dyed or painted silk were fused onto a background and being "painted" with embroidery thread. You'll have to click on the photo to see any details.

Re-doing the calla lilies scarf

I finished the scarf. Just need to wax and get the gutta out.

The calla lilies scarf is getting redone since the last one just didn't turn out the way I wanted.

Silk painting using wax as resist

This is a work in progress. Layers and layers of soy wax alternating with silk dyes. It's very time consuming and I can't wait to see how it'll turn out. That's corn syrup on the bottom portion creating the circular patterns.
