Silk Painting

April 26th, 2015

I’ve just started dabbling in silk painting, mostly scarves at this point. Here are a few that I have done…. Most of the dyes I’ve used are French Silk Dyes, however I have also used some fabric paint as well.

Fabric paint produces vivid colors as well, however I’ve found it makes the fabric feel stiffer and doesn’t actually chemically bond with the silk.

While French Silk Dyes require steaming to set the color, it produces very rich, deep colors and has a more natural feel on the silk since it chemically bonds with the fabric.
