How long does it take to make a scarf?
Typically it takes less than 30 minutes to create your custom, hand-painted silk scarf. Because the paint has a wet side (contact with the water) and a dry side (contact with the air) there is a limited amount of time before the paint begins to dry and adhering to the fabric can become challenging.
Can I wear my scarf out of the event?
Is the paint safe?
Is that just plain, ordinary water?
I just created my own stunning silk scarf. How do I care for it once I get it home?
*Caring for your new silk scarf
The paint on your beautiful scarf is fragile until all the following instructions have been completed.
- Re-hydrate in a bowl or sink of cool/lukewarm water, carefully unfolding once saturated.
- Add a splash of softener, if a softer feel is desired.
- Do NOT wring, twist or squeeze your scarf.
- Hang to Dry
- Hang your scarf, right side facing out, to dry. Placing a rag or towel under dripping scarf is recommended.
- Hot Dry Iron
- Iron the BACK side of your scarf using the hot (cotton) DRY setting.
- Your beautiful hand painted scarf is ready to wear!
Future Care: Hand wash in mild detergent, hang to drip dry, press backside with low heat. Do NOT dry clean!
