A Beginner's Silk Painting

Silk Painting by Allison Farlow
What do you think of my naive and clumsy efforts at silk painting? Would you like to have a go?

It was much harder than I thought it would be and most of it was achieved through trial and error but it hasn't put me off. I love the feel of the loaded brush against the silk fabric and how the colours look and behave. The silk has amazing absorbency and sucks up the colours with gusto!

Silk Painting Explorer PackIf you're interested in having a go, you're welcome to visit my web page in the Fact File at George Weil to see how I got on and how you can learn from my mistakes.

The Silk Painting Explorer Pack offers the materials and equipment to get started with free-style silk painting and you'll also need an gutta outliner if you wish to emulate the effects used in my painting. Have fun! Allison
