I have been making eight new banners for our church that are in several shades of green. I love the bright colors of green that we see in the spring. As summer moves along the greens change and eventually become a darker green. I wanted to incorporate several of the different colors in the scarves.
I used silk scarves that were purchased from Dharma. I did some "Shibori" dyeing on the scarves. Damp silk scarves were wrapped around a long pieces of PVC pipe. String was then wrapped around the silk and the silk was scrunched to one end of the pipe. I applied different shades of green Dye-na-Flow paint to the scarves and let the colors blend together. After the paint had dried the scarves were removed from the PVC and then iron to set the colors.
