THE STORY BEHIND
Modern art is usually associated with ideas in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each item is individually hand made. The design silk face mask begins in natural white silk with the artistic design drawn by hand with a gutta resist.
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES the color is applied by hand with paint brushes creating brilliant results.
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set to permanently set the color. Once steaming is complete each scarf is individually hand washed and ironed.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in my photos,
THE FINISHED painted silk face mask is washed and preshrunk removing all sizing for easy breathing. It is completely colorfast. Each mask is hand cut which may result in slight variations in the finished size.
MASK SIZE approximately 7 " / 18 cm covering nose to under the chin custom sizes available by request , message me for details
