      I would if I knew how to make one :)
      That is just square silk scarf which I painted with my original design. Is it the video of silk painting you are looking for?

      Thank you. It’s not actually batik but it’s similar.

    Wow stunning! Did you do the hand painting? How do you paint with light colours over darker ones? I love it! Well done.

      Thank you for your comment! Yes, I did the hand painting. I didn’t paint lighter colours over dark ones. I started with the white silk, drew the contours of flowers with gutta ( which stops the dye to go from one side to the other) and than painted flowers lighter and background darker.
