Painting on Silk
Today was the day for the Painting on Silk demonstration. It was sort of sad for me because no one came to see it. We will do it again in the future, but I wanted to show you a photograph of what I did with my first attempt at Silk Painting. I was initially very intimidated because I am not a painter. I have tried painting in acrylics and that is ok because you can go over your mistakes. This to me was like watercolor painting, once it is on the fabric it is there to stay. But I found you can blend colors similar to overdying and that gave me some freedom to err. It really is very easy and a lot of fun.
