THE STORY BEHIND
Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy. A "sun color", it makes us feel happy and optimistic. Yellow represents happiness, clarity and sunlight. A stimulating, joyous and intelligent color, yellow is optimistic, confident and full of self esteem.
Creativity - Expansive and free to do and be all that we can be. Helps you feel expressive, curious, and experimental.
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 preshrunk and completely colorfast. Each mask is hand cut which may result in slight variations in the finished size.
MASK SIZE approximately 7 " / 18 cm covering top of nose to under the chin custom sizes available by request
