This week I taught an Intro to Painting on Silk workshop at the EEAC.  Here is a photo of Jane’s work, just beautiful…  I love how different everyone’s pieces were, a whole medium to all, taking chances, trying new things, finding peace in creativity…

Here’s a link to Dharma Trading.  This is a one stop shop for everything you’d need to paint on silk.  They have hemmed silk, we used habotai silk.  We also used a water based Gutta resist by Pebeo and the paints we used were called Dye-na-Flow by Jacquard.  If you need assistance, they are wonderful and so very helpful over the phone.  Happy painting!
