I had the absolute pleasure last week of creating a work of art on a beautiful blank silk shawl made of chiffon edged with gorgeous silk satin.
Although I’ve done a lot of batik work on silk, I have never explored this option on chiffon and so this was my first adventure in that arena.
The undercoat of various shades of pinks and fuchsias already looked so pretty that the shawl could have been ready.
After a sprinkling of salt I created a leaf and flower pattern in wax and then painted the shapes in darker shades of fuchsia.
When I had steamed the shawl I was so taken with the beautiful shimmer the silk had and how light it was.
Now all I need is a fabulous outfit to go with it. I’m sure you’ll agree – satin and chiffon are just in a class of their own.
Please ask if you’d like me to make something like this especially for you. Just message me and we can have a chat to make it happen.- Email Fiona
