I am really excited about using silk paint in the gutta resist method. It has some real advantages not the least being you do not have to steam set!!!!
Below are a few examples of the things I have been practicing on.
Come to the first class with a couple of brushes, a set of stretcher bars (I have several extras if you don't have any yet), and sample the different paints and dyes to see what you like best. I will bring fabric, and the other supplies for making the samples. Some of you have already bought Seta Silk so that is good too.
The colors are brilliant and they flow and glow.
