SILK PAINTING IS A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF EXPRESSING YOURSELF. A PICTURES CAN BE DRAWN OUT ON SILK WITH OUTLINER WHEN THIS IS DRIED SILK PAINTS CAN BE LOADED ON THE BRUSH AND ALLOWED TO FLOOD BETWEEN THE OUTLINES. THE VIVID COLOURS MAKE EVEN THE SIMPLEST DESIGN LOOK STUNNING.TWO OR MORE COLOURS CAN BE USED WITHIN THE OUTLINER AND ALLOWED TO MERGE TOGETHER PRODUCING A GREAT EFFECT.
The fish on the left gives you some idea what can be done with silk paints, see how the various colours merge together when within the outliner.

The Maori mask on the right is a slightly more advanced method of silk painting. Here salt grains have been used to add a further effect. Its best to try this on a sample piece of silk first. Different sorts of salt eg. table salt rock salt gives different tones on the silk. Little is often best when using salt.

The silk painting on the left was done in an aboriginal style, and rather than a normal outliner a metal one has been used this time. As with all the pictures on this page , clicking on the photo will give you a much better idea what I'm trying to describe to you.
