HOW TO DO SILK PAINTING














HI ALL,
IN THIS POST I AM GOING TO TELL HOW TO DO A SILK PAINTING.ITS SIMPLE BUT GIVES A ELEGANT LOOK.

MATERIALS:
  • SILK OR SATIN CLOTH
  • SILK COLOURS
  • GUTTA
  • EMBROIDERY FRAME
  • SYNTHETIC BRUSH NO:2

METHOD:
  • TAKE THE REQUIRED DESIGN AND TRANSFER IT TO THE CLOTH WITH YELLOW CARBON
  • DRAW THE OUTLINE OF THE DESIGN WITH GUTTA(HAVE TO USE GUTTA JUST LIKE GLASS LINER).LET IT DRY.
  • GUTTA WILL BE IN HALF WHITE COLOUR WHILE APPLYING,ONCE IT DRIES IT WILL BECOME TRANSPARENT.
  • TAKE A DROP OF COLOUR IN THE BRUSH AND DROP IT,SINCE THE COLOUR IS VERY WATERY IT WILL SPREAD BY ITSELF.
  • YOU SHOULD DROP THE COLOUR IN THE CENTER,SO THAT IT WILL SPREAD ITSELF TO THE CORNER.DON'T PAINT IT IN THE CORNERS OTHERWISE IT MAY COME OT.
  • LET IT DRY FOR ONE DAY AND THEN WASH THE CLOTH IN THE RUNNING WATER TO REMOVE THE GUTTA FROM CLOTH.
  • IRON IT ON THE REVERSE SIDE.
NOTE:
  • WHILE DOING THE OUTLINE,THE TIP OF THE NOZZLE SHOULD TOUCH THE CLOTH.IF THERE IS ANY GAP BTW THE CLOTH N GUTTA OR ANY BREAKS IN UR LINING THE COLOUR WILL EASILY COMES OUT
