I took a short silk painting workshop in Puerto Vallarta with a woman named Carol Anne, who owns the http://www.oopsperfect.com art studio.
Besides loving her to bits, I loved taking her course.
1. One starts with a long, hemmed oblong piece of white silk. Draw on the silk with a water soluble dressmaker’s pen.
2. Cover the lines with a dye resistant, thick liquid called gutta. The gutta remains on the silk, and it comes in a wide variety of colours. Let dry.
3. Brush in your colours of dye carefully between the lines letting the dye run up to the resist.
4. Let dry. Wash. Iron.
