Scarves as a Work of Art

Painting and stenciling tips & techniques for fabric.

Who knew a simple hand-painted scarf could be so exquisite? Each of the scarves shown here began as a plain, white rayon scarf. The process for painting these takes place in stages, beginning with creating a variegated background. If you'd like to know more about this method, check out "Fashion Accents", which explains the process in step-by-step detail.

Substitute colors as desired to created a variety of backgrounds ready to enhance or embellish. As an added benefit, "Fashion Accents" includes detailed diagrams for creating beaded fringe. You can also begin with a commercially colored scarf and skip straight to stenciling.

The last scarf shown is a mixed media project using a different process than the first six.
