Heron Design Studio
Heron Design Studio specializes in hand painted silk scarves and shawls. At the moment the main focus is on hand-painted fashion accessories such as silk scarves, shawls and hand painted silk wall art. As I am passionate about nature, most of my designs reflect this. As a classically trained fine artist I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of wearable art. So naturally, painting on silk has come as the best idea. Heron Design Studio aims to create such wearable pieces of art that will be timeless and versatile. Every piece that is created is unique.Every design is sketched first on a piece of paper. That is followed by colours being carefully picked. After that the scarf is painted (free hand) with no stencils or aids. Small imperfections are just a part of hand painting process and make the painting unique and unrepeatable. Each of the motives created has different technique (metallic outliner of watercolour technique etc) and different material (different types of silk fabrics) used. That is because suitability is carefully considered.
Large hand painted and shibori silk scarf with motive of leaves in various colours.I painted and dyed this oversized scarf with vibrant bold colours using my favourite outliner technique and shibori tye dye in 3 different colours – black (shades of grey), turquoise and red. For the painting part I chose clear outliner that washes off to achieve subtle look of watercolours (leaves are in wine, red, orange, ochre, violet, blue, turquoise colours, stems are light grey and dark green). The design of leaves is perfect for new autumn/winter season. The shibori part gives the scarf very dynamic look. Its final design is very urban, trendy and fashionable.-100% habotai silk scarf- painted and dyed with high quality German make silk paints/dyes (turquoise, red and black dyes, green, grey, wine red, red, orange, violet, ochre, blue and turquoise paints) and clear outliner (washed off)- hand-rolled edges- size: approx.173 x 90 cm (35 x 68 inches)- iron fixed, steam fixed and pre-washed.- soft on touch
