The issue of creativity on a silk canvas


Silk painting is an extremely creative and risky activity. I avoid to say “job” on purpose, ’cause this is something different. It’s something more than a job. This is art! Its difficulty is linked to the cloth by itself. On the one hand, you have to be kind with the silky cloth because of its sensitivity. On the other hand, painting on a silk “canvas” is just like an extreme sport, taking some risks and having incredible outcomes in the end. Silk painting is carried out in a different way in contrast to other kinds of painting. Thus, sometimes it’s noticed that a specific technique will create something different than you’ve expected. So, the most important thing is to understand silk painting through its cloth. This is magic!
