Silk Painting

Last Sunday I went to Spotlight and returned with a small piece of silk - they didn't have any suitable white or cream available - hence the dull bronze shade - to practice on. It's similar to painting with watercolours. I just used an embroidery hoop which is perfect for keeping the silk taut. The outline is 'gutta' which allows the paint to stay within the lines without bleeding out. The sea salt is for producing a type of marbling effect. I have plans for this which i'm not divulging - you'll just have to wait! hehehe :)
