In this post I will show you step by step how I have painted commissioned sea theme scarf for a customer in the USA. All steps are followed by photographs.
It all starts with stretching the silk on a wooden frame and I use pencil to draw the design. Next step is to apply the Gutta, which will keep the paint from going out of the borders.
In this case I used Gutta in 2 colors – one is gold for the ships, and the other is transparent for the rest.
Once the Gutta is applied, it needs to dry perfectly before you apply the silk paints. Here I started my coloring with the sun, first I applied water only and then the paint.
