silk painting

On saturday afternoon Jenny and I learned how to paint silk from Sarah. I made a scarf with koi on watery blues. it was so much fun.

The dyes behave slightly differently than acid dyes for wool. Mixing liquid color is easy, but once its on the silk its much harder to get colors to blend. If i had room in my life for another addiction... but i don't. So i'll just have to go to sarah's house to play with this.

(obviously, my knitting progress is not interesting enough to show off.)
