Learning new techniques for painting silk

I am having a blast (and a bit of frustration) learning new techniques for painting on silk!


At the retreat (see previous post), I learned more about the MS (Magic Sizing) method created by master-silk-painter Karen Sistek (A WONDERFUL TEACHER - I highly recommend taking a class or two or three from her if you decide you want to learn to paint silk!).  And after much discussion with my retreat-mates, I am also going to experiment with Pro Print Paste as a resist (for the Serti method which I already am using).

My latest paintings (also can be seen in my gallery) include a landscape and a magnolia painting done with the Serti method (using Resistad), and a poppy using the MS technique.  My next project is going to be an Iris using the MS method and a friend's adorable dog.  I'll post the pictures when I'm done.  Thanks for looking, and if you're interested in purchasing any of the paintings in my gallery, please send me an email!
