Hellebores on Silk
For this workshop I will demonstrate the Serti Technique, where an outline contains the flow of the paints. We are using silk paints which are easy to use and are then fixed using an iron. The colours can be used full strength or diluted with water to obtain pastel shades. A selection of colours are available for you to use or you can mix your own shades from the primary colours. We will be using a water soluble out-liner by Jacquard, which can be washed out of the silk with warm water, after the paints have been fixed. This is perfect for all levels as I will take you through all the processes to help you leave at the end of the day with a piece of painted silk (approx A4) which can be mounted and framed or used on a cushion or bag. You can either work to your own design or follow one of my pre drawn templates.
