If you ever wondered what painting on silk is like and haven’t had time to read my blog, these videos will give you the silk painting basics along with many tips I’ve learned during my 5 years of experimenting with all kinds of materials. These primers will give you a good understanding of what silk painting (dyeing) is all about.
I apologize in advance for the quality/orientation of the video, my stuttering, and my overall appearance. I don’t dress up in fancy clothes when I work in my studio–even if I’m being videoed for potentially the world to see. This is me in my natural, messy environment.
