In this photo, one of my students has outlined her design with an acrylic fabric paint. We outline the main design so that when we paint it, the paint stays within the wall of the outlining paint. Otherwise, it would just run free all over the place.
This photo shows how one of my students painted the inside of the outlined area to make a beautiful Kauai sunrise shell.
Next, we paint in the background, being sure to keep the entire background wet. Then we sprinkle on a little Hawaiian sea salt to make some spontaneous designs in the background.
I hope you have enjoyed this fun silk painting demo! Below are some of the scarves that I've painted and they are for sale:
