Painting a Leafy Chiffon Scarf

I must admit to being non traditional when it comes to silk painting. I do use the resist technique to create a shape that is then filled in with paint, but my favourite way to paint is just freehand. It can be a bit scary at first because the paints are meant to spread, so you can end up with blobs if you're not careful. It just takes a little practice to learn how much paint to put on the brush and how it spreads on different silks. Here is  part one of 'Painting a Silk Chiffon Scarf Part 1". I hope you enjoy it! Part 2 is in the next post....
