I use different techniques of silk painting 

different effect techniques (from the simple water- and salt effects) and combinations of all mentioned above. I also teach all those techniques - you are welcome to visit my studio and take a course or some individual lessons!

After the painting is complete, each silk item is placed in a special steam pot for setting the dyes. The silk is kept in the steaming pot for 3 hours. This steaming process creates a chemical reaction between the dye and the silk cloth, allowing it to form a permanent bond with the silk fibers. This allows the colors in the silk to be permanent - water and light resistant.

I plan to introduce in this page some silk painting ideas step-by- step and illustrated with photos. The first three stories - painting cornflowers with gutta and without contours, and painting a silk scarf with a skating star in combined technique - is ready now. I also have done a silk painting video with the help of my friend Pille. The video is in Estonian, but the language of painting is universal, so I hope you will get the main idea!
