Silk Scarf Sun Painting/Wintergreen Transfers
Silk is a superb surface for detailed fiber work, including Solar Painting, which uses resist techniques to create otherworldly silhouettes, or wintergreen oil transfers, which have the capability to reproduce photographs.

Simple Silk Screen Techniques
This is a 100% NON TOXIC approach to making infinitely repeatable imagery on fabric. Using materials that are easily found and a process that is safe to do at your kitchen table you can create custom fabric for specific projects, or produce your own line of T-shirts. The technique can be learned in a day and yet after years I am still learning new applications.
