Alex's hand-painted silks



I have something I wanted to show you. What do you think of these handpainted silk designs that a very young and talented Alex created back in high school (she's now in her early 20s)? Her mother Eva has made every single design into garments and you can sometimes find her in them at Tessuti Surry Hills....they're truly incredible!

Alex handpaints on silk habutai, crepe de chine, georgettes, duppions and raw tussah silk on natural or coloured bases. Using silk fabric paints and gutta to outline her designs.



These designs below have been hand-painted on silk crepe de chine and the spot design is on silk duppion.







Anyone interested ( DT students too) in learning to hand paint on silk or to have a one-off design created for you .. can email Alex - amlodziejewski@gmail.com
