"Karen's Comments"

Painting on silk is the most magnificent medium I have ever touched! When the dyes touch the luxurious silk, they flow together making the most wondrous designs. This technique can be enhanced using salts, water, and alcohol. The results will be different when added to wet or dry dye.

The flow of the dyes can be controlled by first drawing a design using gutta or water-based resists, then painting your design within the lines.

Through many trials and tribulations, I have discovered a technique to stop the flow of the dyes, and produce a water color effect on silk, using steam-set dyes. A most amazing discovery."
