The description of Winter DIY Scarf Marble Tutorials
Scarf is a piece of fabric worn around the neck for warmth, sun protection, cleanliness, fashion, or religious reasons. They can be made in a variety of different materials such as wool, cashmere, linen or cotton. It is a common type of neckwear.
Scarfs can be tied in many ways including the pussy-cat bow, the square knot, the cowboy bib, the ascot knot, the loop, the necktie, and the gypsy kerchief.
Don’t you just love a pretty, colorful silk scarf? Did you know that it’s actually very easy to dye your own? All you need is the right tools and some basic know-how.
Step 1. The materials
-100% Silk Scarf
-Plastic Gallon Bags
-Disposable plates and cups
-Roasting Pan with steamer basket or old pie tins(disposable -don’t use for food after dyeing!)
-Latex gloves (optional)
Step 2. Wash and Soak and Fold
First you want to wash your silk scarves in warm, soapy water to remove any sizing and oil from your hands. Heat up about a cup of vinegar to very warm, but not hot temp. (Silk loses its luster if exposed to very high temps.) Soak your scarves in the vinegar for about 20 minutes. While your scarves are soaking, mix up the dyes according to the directions on the dye container. Take your scarves out of the vinegar and squeeze out the excess liquid.
Folding How you fold or scrunch your scarf will determine the pattern. For the first scarf, I wanted an “accordion” pattern so I folded it in half lengthwise and beginning at one end, loosely folded it back and forth. Scarf 2, I just wadded and scrunched up in a ball. Place each scarf on a disposable plate.
Step 3. Adding the dye
Apply 2-3 colors of dye to each scarf – just enough to saturate the fabric. As you can see, I used a bit too much dye but that’s ok Scarf 1 colors: Sapphire Blue and Hot Fuschia Scarf 2 colors: Emerald Green, Turquoise and Yellow Sun
Step 4. Steaming
Carefully lift your scarf (keeping the shape) and let some of the excess dye drain. Place in plastic bag. (Separate bags if you’re doing more than one) Now, place the steamer basket (or old pie tins) in the bottom of your roasting pan to keep the bags out of the water. Add about an inch of water and place your plastic bags on top. Cover the roaster. Turn burner on medium heat and once the water begins to simmer, turn down to low. Simmer for about 1 hour. Take a peek under the lid a couple of times to make sure there is steam. This is needed to set the dye.
Step 5. Finishing
