#221, Introduction to Silk Painting - Cheryl Cameron

June 24, Sunday
12:00 am - 5:00 pm

This workshop will be an introduction to silk painting using the serti technique. We will talk about technique, using resist/gutta, color application and blending, salt technique, setting the colors and all that good stuff in plenty of detail. You’ll paint a handkerchief to get used to the process, and then an 8 x 54 inch scarf. I’ll borrow your pieces to set the colors and get the finished pieces back to you a few days later.

Ages: 15 to adult (under 15 with a parent)
