The Fine Art of Silk Painting
Silk painting as an art form finds its roots in China, with over 2000 years of fascinating history. Using white silk as the surface, Chinese artisans used to beat the silk cloths against boulders to smoothen the surface, before applying coloured pigment to the cloth. The earliest paintings were made with animal hair brushes. Colour pigments consisted of soot and glue or vermillion and Azurite. Modern day silk paintings are created with dyes and silk paints and this art is now followed all over the world. In fact, the latest techniques such as ‘Seri’ use simple methods of outlining and dye-filling, making silk painting almost as easy as kiddie colouring books. Today, it is possible for even novice artists to successfully create stunning silk paintings.
If you happen to own or create a silk painting, you should know that continuous exposure to moisture or humid environment can make the fibre quite brittle. If you are going to frame your painting, allow a little gap in the framing so that there is some air flow. That will help to minimise moisture build up and keep your painting intact.
