My hand painted silk scarves are now available through my Etsy Gallery https://www.etsy.com/shop/kauaiartist . Each one of a kind silk creation measures approximately 30"x30" and is painted in my Kauai, Hawaii studio on an 8mm Habotai scarf, which is also known as "China Silk". It is very lightweight and breezy and fun to wear.  I paint using Dye-Na-Flow silk fabric paints, and the design outline is painted with an acrylic fabric paint.  The background has a fun pattern created by adding Hawaiian sea salt to the paint as it dries.

Caring for your new scarf: Just wash your scarf in the sink with a little Woolite or similar, rinse in cold water, hang to dry, and iron on the back side using the silk setting on your iron.

Want me to make you a custom design in the colors of your choice? I can also custom paint a silk scarf just for you. Just send me a note, and I will be happy to work with you!

Each silk scarf sells for $50 USD plus shipping.  To view my entire line of silks please visit: https://www.etsy.com/shop/kauaiartist?section_id=17678506 .

I also teach silk painting in my Kauai studio, Painting Paradise.  To view my art class schedule, please visit: http://www.kauaiartclasses.blogspot.com/ .  If you don't see a class scheduled during your visit, please contact me to set up a private lesson. 

Aloha and Mahalo,
