Creating a Painting on Silk/VMFA
Using liquid resist and Dye-Na-Flow silk paints, we will focus our painting on smaller pieces this year and use 8“ x 10” stretchers. Each participant can expect to finish 3-4 pieces which may be suitable for framing or finishing off at home. We will discuss different effects such as using black or clear resists, mixing paint directly on the silk, using salt for a starburst effect and layering colors on the silk. The paints are permanent, please wear art clothes.
