to get ready for the summer months and summer shows, i do a lot of silk painting. and the more i do, the more i learn. this season i have been exploring a number of resists. basically these are any items that repel and move the dye around on the silk, such as alcohol (the isopropyl kind), sugar, salt and syrup.
corn syrup is my current resist of choice. depending on placement, i can get dreamy watercolor like effects or bold abstracts. it’s sticky, messy and fun!
what do you think of them?
