THE STORY BEHIND
 Mermaids are also aligned with Undines, those pervasive spirits of all waters in the world. This is quite nice, as mermaids also represent wild freedom, rebellious spirits and ferocious independence (they can never be contained and frequently avoid settling).
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each design is individually hand drawn using a black gutta resist on natural white pure silk crepe de chine.
WITH SILK DYES and paintbrushes the color is applied and blended
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set, permanently fixing the dye color , then the silk is hand washed and ironed
THE FINISHED hand painted silk is then ready to be made into a One Of A Kind piece of wearable art. Each piece is hand cut and hand made, resulting is slight variations, designed and sewn by Lynne Kiel.
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 all my photos.
