THE STORY BEHIND
Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each design silk top is individually hand made. The silk begins in natural white and the artistic design is drawn by hand with a gutta resist
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES and paint brushes the color is added and blended by hand creating one of a kind combinations
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set to fix the color. once steaming is complete the silk is 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 accurate coloring of the silk and artwork in all my photos
THE FINISHED painted silk tank top is preshrunk and colorfast. Each top is individually had cut and handmade which may result in slight variations .
