Banana Silk

This is my first 14 x 72" silk. I painted it while it was ironed onto freezer paper. No resist at first. I made flower splotches, yellow swishes, and added purples and dark blues. When I looked at it in the morning the beautiful light yellow swishes, looked liked bananas. Oops, that would not do. So I washed the whole silk out in the sink. Then added gold resist, filled in the yellow swish areas with a darker purple, drew fantasy flowers and steamed the results. No more bananas. Sometimes the fixes make the silk all the more beautiful. haboti silk,
