Silk Painting Process
Pigmenting on silk is different from other conventional paintings such as oil, water, and other mediums. Preparation is time consuming which includes removing impurities from silk, framing on the bar, and filling the silk pores with gelatin water before painting.
Most parts of the painting is done on the back side of silk, and finished on the front side. This defines the spacing and overlapping of colors. I enjoy silk painting for this specific reason as the outcome is unique.
