Intro to Silk Painting

Discover the simple, yet exquisite technique of painting on silk. Learn how to trace the outline of your design with gutta resist, then touch the dyes on with a brush and watch them flow. Choose from the instructor's patterns or create your own. Completing a 22"x22" scarf will teach you the basic skills of design, color mixing, blending and texturizing. Simple enough for absolute beginners, this is also an exciting way for more experienced painters to transfer their talents to fabric.
