Description

Everybody knows this fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen. I painted Snow Queen in her Nordic World surrounded by the frozen beauty of ice.

**************************************************************************
The creation of this original silk painting included several steps. First I made a drawing and traced it onto silk. Then, I painted a light blue background to make the whole picture to have an icy glow. Then, I outlined the design with resist. Next, I painted the picture with fabric dyes. The final step is 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 was stretched onto acid free canvas.

***************************************************************************
The sides are painted, so a frame is not necessary.

***************************************************************************
The wire will be attached on the back to hang it.

**************************************************************************
Size 30″/30″

A version of this silk painting with a little less details in the background is also available
as a square scarf.

You can buy a print of “Snow Queen” as well.
