Silk is a glorious surface to paint on!  One caveat, though, is that the process of silk painting has its own complexities – involving resists, dyes, specialty brushes, stretching systems, applicator bottles…  Once the painting is complete, it must be set permanently through steaming.  A great book on the subject was written by Susan Louise Moyer.

The results, especially for those who enjoy textiles or fashionistas, are “dreamy.”

This is some of my work with silk both painting and printing.
