Silk Painting: The Artist's Guide to Gutta and Wax Resist Techniques Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Master the secrets of an exquisite art form. Silk painting is rapidly gaining an enthusiastic following among surface designers, fine artists, and craftspeople alike. The pure, transparent colors of the dyes, combined with the luxuriant drape of the silk itself, combine to make this a uniquely sensuous medium. By using gutta, wax, alcohol, or salt, the artist can create a variety of appealing textures and visual effects. This book shows exactly how to use each technique and how to combine them for intricate paintings.

Synopsis:

Gutta resist allows artists to paint on silk without destroying its drape. This guide reviews materials, suggests a palette of fabric dyes, and offers lessons on techniques.

About the Author

Susan L. Moyer is a professional silk painter and fabric designer who has sold her designs to major clothing manufacturers and stores, including Perry Ellis, Gottex, Yves St. Laurent, Neiman-Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
