Master the secrets of an exquisite art form. Silk painting is rapidly gaining an enthusiastic following among surface designers, fine artists, and craftspeople alike. The pure, transparent colors of the dyes, combined with the luxuriant drape of the silk itself, combine to make this a uniquely sensuous medium. By using gutta, wax, alcohol, or salt, the artist can create a variety of appealing textures and visual effects. This book shows exactly how to use each technique and how to combine them for intricate paintings.
