Painting - Dyes On Silk
Painting on Silk with Fiber Reactive Steam Set Dyes and Resists
Painting on silk is an incredibly time consuming and unforgiving medium, just one drop of misplaced dye or a smudged resist line and days of painstaking work are ruined.
As challenging as painting on silk is however, it is also one of the most rewarding art forms because the two hour steaming process joins the fiber reactive dyes molecularly with the silk so the dyes take on the silks iridescent sheen. It is because of this union that silk paintings are able to produce an awe inspiring range of reflective color that no other medium is capable of creating.
