Silk Painting is an old Asian art form….Painting on silk happened long before painting on canvas and paper. Silk paintings are created on white silk, the dyes (gutta) are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush. The dye flows into the fiber, bond with the proteins and become part of the threads. This painting is different from acrylic, oil or even watercolors that all sit on the surface. These paintings are steamed- set locking the dyes into the fibers and making.
