How to Begin to Paint on Silk
There are many silk painting techniques: gutta, batik, shibori, watercolour, engraving, monotype, screen printing, etc. Each technique has its own particularities and allows us to obtain different results on the silk. There are also many different types of silk: pongee, gauze, crepe, georgette, velvet, satin, etc. The final result will be different on each fabric.
