Halloween silk scarf

Hi!

One e-mail today reminded me that I have not posted any news here!

Today I will show you my Halloween hand painted silk scarf. It took me 3 days to paint it and I really enjoyed all the process behind it. The black cat is my favourite one, there is something mystical in it and also magical…

Even the Halloween is far behind us, I hope you will enjoy it!

Greetings

 

 

 

 

Scarf with a cause

This is a story about a beautiful Rose, which origin one can find in a small old country, somewhere in Europe bordering the Black Sea. She is living peacefully with her sisters in the Rose valley next to the city Kazanluk. For over 300 years the people inhabiting the famed Valley of Roses, situated between the Balkan and Sredna Gora mountain ranges in Central Bulgaria, have grown roses and processed them into rose oil, celebrated the world over for its superb quality and unique aroma. The Rose celebrates her biggest fest in the first days of the month June each year. She is lucky to be famous all around the world as the Bulgarian Rose. She is the Queen of all flowers.
Here you can meet the “Power Rose” – pink ribbon Silk Scarf coming from the land of the Bulgarian Rose. This scarf is with a special cause – the fight against the Breast cancer.

Hand painted silk scarf inspired by Miro

First of all I need to mention one thing for this scarf – it is not for sale.

And now I will write you the interesting story behind this silk scarf.

After my visit in Barcelona and Miro’s museum, I was in love with his art and he became one of my favorite painters. He inspired me to paint this silk scarf, but putting also my elements such as the red heart and blue SWAROVSKI crystals. I loved the final result so much! It is only one piece, so nobody else can have it. And the yellow color which is so modern this summer made it stand out. I made the photo shoot at the Bulgarian Black Sea with the wonderful model Geri, thank you for that!

Few weeks after uploading my Miro inspired scarf on Etsy shop, I have received the following message in my inbox:

“Dears Sirs,

ADAGP is the French visual arts copyright collecting society. We represent the copyright interests of different Estates worldwide through the action of our 50 sisters societies based in foreign countries such ARS in US or SIAE in Italy.

It has come to our attention that you are selling a scarf whith the image of an artwork by our member MIRO Joan in the following announcement :

Additionally, we require you provide us with :

Sincerely,
ADAGP

Ok… no problem…I will remove it and it is not for sale anymore… but I wondered: how is that this big organization stumbled upon my one piece of art inspired by Miro and actually not being of a big value… (it costed around 35 USD). I have only one answer in my head and it is the competition.

Now the scarf is not for sale of course, but I will keep it with me – as a memory for this event 🙂

Here you can enjoy it too!

Greetings!

Silk scarf summer Flowers

Summer inspired me to paint this Flower’s scarf using bright and attractive colors. The size of the scarf is 90×90 cm and I used 100 % silk pongee 5 which is HAND ROLLED. Only exclusive brands such as HERMES use this finishing technique this is why I decided it is the best I can offer to my customers. You can wear this silk scarf as an open back blouse for the summer.

The photo session was made this summer in the city center park. Lovely model Radiana posed for me. Thank you Radiana.

Enjoy

Sea theme silk scarf

This sea theme scarf was inspired by the Bulgarian Black Sea and the wonderful Bulgarian nature. I painted it on 100 % Bulgarian Silk and it is of the highest quality. I used blue paint, as well as red for the lovely sea star, which is as an accent to the scarf.

This item is decorated with original Swarovski Elements to give unique and interesting look. You can wear this scarf as a head band, as well as a belt, just see the looks below! Personally, I image this scarf being worn on the walk by the sea side, with white sexy dress. This is why I have done the photo session below with the beautiful Geri on the sea side and she is wearing nice white dress 🙂 I made all the photographs and it was a pleasure to work with the model, she came few times for the photo shoot, as it was raining most of the time! But I really like the final pictures.

Check them for yourself!

How to paint sea theme silk scarf – step by step guide

In this post I will show you step by step how I have painted commissioned sea theme scarf for a customer in the USA. All steps are followed by photographs.

photo1

It all starts with stretching the silk on a wooden frame and I use pencil to draw the design. Next step is to apply the Gutta, which will keep the paint from going out of the borders.

In this case I used Gutta in 2 colors – one is gold for the ships, and the other is transparent for the rest.

Once the Gutta is applied, it needs to dry perfectly before you apply the silk paints. Here I started my coloring with the sun, first I applied water only and then the paint.
