This is the end result from photo, "scarf in progrees". I added a taupe-chocolate brown dye for completion of background color. After I added the background color, it blended in a watercolor affect. After steaming the watercolor blending was enhanced even more. I wrap the silk in a bundle then steam for 25 minutes. I then wash out the excess dye. The scarf can be hand washed with mild soap, then a warm iron, if you wish.
