silk painting


I went to the small hobby fair yesterday and I really liked silk painting booth of an Armenian lady, you could 'try before you buy' every color and technique like batik, tye and dye, salt ... I tried only the basic one and here is my 15 minutes trial piece. It's so quick and easy, the only bad part is that I should cook it in pressure cooker to fix the color (I'm so afraid of it, are you?)

A hot iron should set it aswell. Protect the iron with greaseproof paper

Silk painting is addicting! NEW pressure cookers are wonderful. If you have an old one, recycle it, especially if it's from the U.S.! I cook at least half my meals in pressure cookers... Jillian
