“Arabic Tale”



  • Original silk painting
  • Materials: silk, silk dye, metallic fabric paint
  • Ships worldwide from United States


This original silk painting was inspired by the “One Thousand and one nights”.
It is painted with silk dye. The colors are set by the steaming process.
Steaming is necessary to set the dyes and make them permanent.
I steam not only my wearable items, but wall hangings as well. It makes them sun tolerant and protected from humidity.
The colors are very strong and do not fade like water colors.

The silk is stretched onto acid free canvas.
I added finishing touches to the painting with 3D copper fabric paint to add more texture.
The wire is already attached on the back to hang it.
The sides are painted, so a frame is not necessary.
The size of this piece is 30″/40″.
