What I discovered in that silk painting class was so much more!! Kim taught me different techniques with salt, vinegar, sugar & water. You're right, I know it sounds like salad dressing but combining these with the fabric adds flavor to the painting. I had so much FUN in class that I purchased paints scarves and fabrics. I made scarves for the women on my list for Christmas. They were the guinea pigs helping me learn...hehe
Here are the silk scarves hanging in my garden. It was really fun to make personalized gifts.
Watching the color flow on silk is amazing and almost addictive in how much I enjoy it. Color is what I love. Combining colors of fabrics to play with or play off of one another is what gives my art quilts depth and dimension. Now I am able to play with color in a brand new way. Mixing colors and watch them do their own thing on the fabric.
