Painting on Silk: The Serti Method

You've always admired the beauty of silk and the colorful scarves and clothing designers create with it.  Learn to create those beautiful colors and designs yourself.  Discover the simple Serti technique of painting on silk.  Trace your design onto the silk with a resist, using a pattern from my collection or yours.  The dyes are then applied with a brush, flowing and blending naturally to create paintings, scarves, quilts, home decor, cards and more.  Simple enough for beginners, silk painting is also an exciting way for experienced painters to transfer their talents to fabric. You'll complete a 22x22" scarf as you learn the basic skills of design, color mixing, blending and texturing.
