This is my final attempt to load this.
One of the things I get asked to teach most often is silk painting. I can only teach the basics but its an enjoyable course. I am indebted to the wonderful books by Mandy Southam. They are clear and conciseness ad conci. I can't recommend them enough.
I have been putting together a set of samples ready for the next course and at some point in the last last decade I mentioned a morning spent folding, pegging and clamping colt and some of you we're kind enough to ask what they looked like finished.
Without further ado
Makes a sort of star in the centre.
A bit mmeehh
I love some of the textures this creates. It's not the clearest tye dye but it has some really interesting parts.
Any ideas? The silk paint just did not get through leaving some interesting but very small patches of paint. I will have to try this one again.
Me as well.
This is a dull sample but I have seem some fab ones in class.
Must remember the camera more often.
This first one I used silk paint. Not enough. Too much white for me. Some interesting patches.
Really starting to like this technique. Used dye na flow this time. Great strong colours and large patches of colour. It's still not right but its getting closer.
There, finally, the results of a fun morning. It all seems a long time ago now.
The other attempts at this post had lots more comment but when it takes so long to post it gets a bit duller each time I write it.
