The Art of Designing
Hand Painted Scarves

Your comprehensive guide to painting and stenciling 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. I explain the process in step-by-step detail.

Substitute colors as desired to create a variety of backgrounds ready to enhance or embellish. As an added benefit, I've included detailed diagrams for creating beaded fringe. You can also begin with a commercially colored scarf and skip straight to stenciling.
