Original Painting on Silk
A wonderful painting to hang on a wall!
– Hand painted silk (Batik)
|This original silk paintings are created on white Crepe de Chine silk using silk paints and clear water-soluble resist. The silk paints are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush. The paints flow into the fiber and bond with the proteins, becoming a part of the silk thread. This is different than oil, acrylic, or watercolor paints which sit on the surface of the support. These paintings are then heat set – locking the paints into the fiber and making the color of the painting reasonably lightfast and washable. I recommend dry environment and no direct sunlight.
The silk painting is mounted on white core foamboard and framed . It is ready to hang.
