I am trying Seta Silk for silk painting.
Seta Silk is a very watery pigment paint that is used with gutta lines to keep it in place, just like silk dye, but I found it stayed put better than the dye does.
I rather liked it and you DO NO STEAM SET! It sets in 24 hours or after it is dry you can iron it. Ironing too soon or too hot seems to dull the paint color a bit. I am pleased with the results, but will be working and experimenting with it a bit more.
Still painting on canvas and paper as well
A couple of years ago I was speaking to a Quilt Guild in Glendora and I arrived early.
While sitting in the car a flock of green parrots flew into the trees in front of where I had parked. I wanted to get the feeling of motion from the fluttering wings as they flocked into the tree.
