Silk scarf WHITE TREE of GONDOR - for commission! by MinkuLul Silk scarf WHITE TREE of GONDOR - for commission! by MinkuLul
Hand painted silk scarf! I know I should put my scarfs in order but I couldn't ressist to show this one as soon as I made the picture! Oh it was such a fun to make and I wasn't sure till the end how will it look.
Recently I started reading Lord of the Rings again, it such a good book. Well, this pattern is (obviously) inspired by the White Tree of Gondor :)
If you wish to see my other works inspired by the LOTR, go

This one is made to order - if you are interested just note me or go to ETSY: [link]

......I've visited your pages several times now via groups (and their deviation posts) that we obviously both belong to, and I've always been impressed with your competency* and ideas... meaning: I always love your work!, (implying, naturally, that this example is no exception), so....sigh!.... I guess I'm going to have to add you to my watch list as well...;)

 

Peter.

 

*Competency is a thing I take very seriously as a professional, (it's taken more lightly, with less rigour, towards New-comers, Student Artisans and Amateurs, naturally...:)...), so trust me, (as an ex member of Cambridge University's Local Examinations Syndicate Team Assessing & Judging "A"Level exams etc) if I am "impressed" then it is intended as very high praise indeed! (I hope that you are aware that I say all this with a certain amount of modesty as it is, after all, simply the personal opinion of just  a person... like any other... P.)

Ooh, this is so lovely! I really love the detail in this, as a LoTRs fan myself, your scarves are a beautiful representation. Was this done with wax?

thank you! :) It was done with gutta and silk paint (it's something else, when you do textiles with wax you dye them, I painted mine)

You're welcome!Ah, I'll have to look into it, I study textiles at college, so I've done a bit of batik dying. Your work is really lovely and precise, I wondered how you could manage to get the trees so delicate.

thank you!! it was done with a 'gutta' which is similar to wax (I imagine, but I'm not sure) and a really thin applicator.
