The idea was to remove as much of the background so the color of the scarf would show. I had a hard time with that concept until I actually saw the finished product and then the lightbulb went on! I just kept burning away as Charlie, our instructor told me to.
Charlie had dyed a beautiful assortment of silk satin scarfs, choosing a color was difficult - just so many luscious colors.
Charlie Slate in Greenville, SC does a beautiful job with this class. I am looking forward to taking another workshop from her.
