Blue Wave Silk Scarf

Deborah Younglao Blue Wave silk scarfThis is a scarf I did before leaving home... waves of turquoise, navy blue and lilac on my favorite silk - jacquard. The photo below is a close up of the unpainted silk. The jacquard weave forms the leaf pattern, and it's where the silk fibers have a satiny shine on the surface. They're still white, but the pattern shows up when light hits the silk a certain way. The lighter-looking background is where the silk fibers have a flatter, less shiny surface.
