Art: Silk Painting on Mondays

Monday mornings at BACG mean Silk Painting class.

The talented members who are a part of this class create beautiful work. This morning, Maureen began a new piece, the photo above showing her applying gutta (pronounced goo-ter) to the silk. The gutta stops the paints from running into each other, if that is the effect you want.

Once the gutta is applied, the painting begins.

Salt is used to create different effects, much like in watercolours.

Once this piece is finished, I'll post a picture of the finished work.

Stay tuned...
