SILK PAINTING - SETASILK PAINTS
I painted a trial length of fabric - shown left. As I'm impatient, I dried it on the Aga top, hence the circular marks. Apart from that, the colours are quite good but will need to be much more intense on the final fabric.
This afternoon, I painted my first length of background with much more concentrated Setasilk paints and am letting it dry naturally - no cheating on the Aga this time. It's shown here drying - and looks quite promising so far.
I love the rich colours that are possible with this method and the way they blend and run into one another - my reason for choosing silk and these paints.
I just hope I've painted them on with enough intensity so that they deliver the colours I'm imagining.
