What is Silk Painting
Silk Painting is the art to paint on fabrics made of pure silk.
we use silk paint or dyes for the silk painting techniques.
Popular techniques of silk painting include also many different methods such as:
– Serti, a technique consisting of defining the areas where to apply the color by a “resist” (gutta or wax). The resist prevents the dye from expanding, and therefore it allows you to have the complete control of the painting.
– Salt technique: based on the salt’s property to absorb the paint, this technique allows you to create multi-varied effects
– Wet on Wet technique, mainly used in watercolor, based on blending different colors to create new shades and shapes.
