I would like to experiment with silk painting. This is a first step, and instead of silk I used a similar-feel fabric, although synthetic.
I used black and bronze silk paints and a brush (free hand painting). I applied a ribbon all around the “painting” to give it more definition. The paint was set through non-steam ironing. This can now be washed by hand, the colours will not run.
This was a first attemp, there will some more, hopefully more successful.
