In Tuesday's post I showed the Piedmont Silk Painters' workshop on learning how to use Zentangle patterns on silk. My efforts resulted in this scarf. Thinking spring thoughts, I had started with background wash of pale green and yellow, over which I drew my patterns with wax. My top dye layer was an ombre wash, going from turquoise at one end to navy blue at the other.
I decided to do one more, this time alternating between light and dark patterns. This one didn't turn out the way I saw it in my head at all! I like parts of it but not the whole thing. Oh well... that's silk painting for ya!
I must say I'm not thrilled with either of these scarves, but it was a good learning experience! If I do a Zentangle-y type of design again, I'll have to take a different approach.
