Lilla does some silk painting, Part I

Here’s some silk painting I’m working on. It’s such an amazing medium. I’m going to make a tie for my husband. Check back to see the tie at some point. Right now, you’re seeing the brown line which is a resist which prevents the dyes from bleeding. Check out how the silk is stretched on an upside-down canvas on stretchers which I had lying around. Let me know if you’d like me to talk about technique on this.





  • oh, yes, lilla… do tell us more!

  • Thanks, Kim! It’s a very fun and easy medium. Can’t wait to show the tie. It’s addicting. I already have ideas for more.
