Supplies for Watercolour Scarf


  • Fabric infinity scarf
  • Paintbrushes
  • Bowl of water
  • Fabric paint

Step 1// How to Make a Watercolour Scarf


Step 1: Start by choosing your first colour and painting a small area of the scarf.

Since I used an infinity scarf, the fabric overlaps when it is laid flat (like two pieces of fabric on top of each other, except they are connected as one).

The paint will bleed through to the other side this way, which will make the painting process faster and easier.
