Silk Painting

Silk Painting

A true work of art, silk painting is an ideal activity to fight against stress and forget the little worries of everyday life. 

A few months ago, I discovered this amusing technique that allows me to create many textile accessories. Using freehand or tracing, painting on silk is accessible to everyone! Take a suitable silk, silk painting, brush and gutta to create colourful works of art. 

The first step is to place the silk on a frame, it must be perfectly stretched. Then come the creative phase where you will draw patterns with gutta. Once the gutta is dry, apply the paint to the silk by spreading the dyes with your brush.
