Tulip mania hand painted silk scarf
Did you know that there are 3,000 registered varieties of tulips? Tulips have an absolutely fascinating history and part of that history was a red tulip with a white fringe becoming the symbol of hope for Parkinson's Disease in 2005. The design of this red and white scarf was inspired by those tulips. The red outline of the tulips was hand drawn onto the silk using resist which I colored with dye. Once the resist was dry I painted the area behind the tulips. This one-of-a-kind silk scarf is painted using dyes which allows the silk to retain its naturally flowing "hand" and remain soft to the touch.
The 11 x 60" scarf designed and painted by Smethport, Pennsylvania artist Julie Mader has been steam-set and is hand washable.
