For Those Of You Who Want To Try This At Home

You may have heard me rattling on about the process of hand-painting onto silk over the last few posts and heard me carrying on like a pork chop because I was unable to achieve the exact results I'd set out to make. At this point I decided to use google and youtube to help. I stumbled upon this Jill Kennedy video which is a fantastic explanation on the process. When I was young it was all the rage for parents to take their kids to a plaster fun house to paint tacky little knick-knacks one of which I remember off by heart. It went: "If you tinkle when you sprinkle be a sweetie and wipe the seatie". Absolutely shocking in retrospect and I was forced to stare at it every morning on the job when I was a kid. I think when it comes time for me to have puppies I will definitely be having home silk painting workshops from my garage. Enjoy the video and consider buying Jill Kennedy's DVD because if you are interested in making your own silk designs, this is a wonderful place to start.
