Silk Painting Demonstration – BABY SEA TURTLE

Painting on silk is  fast becoming the  medium of  choice when working with textiles. In this miniature I am working with  10mm Habotai silk and water based silk paints. The  silk  is  first attached to a line  drawing on  bleached kraft paper with an artist  spray adhesive. With the  silk  mounted it is  now  possible  to see the  lines which  indicate the  area for adding the water based  resist. The  resist  forms the  design on the  silk which is  then  stretched on a  frame  to be  suspended in the  air so that  the  liquid silk paints  can be applied using small Chinese  Sumi sheep hair brushes.
