Silk painting refers to the practice of applying paints or dyes to silk textiles. 

Silk is a fine fiber made from the filaments of silkworm cocoons. When boiled and gently unwound, these pupal casings produce silk strands that can be combined into threads, which, in turn, can be used to make textiles.

Painting on silk is soothing and extraordinarily pleasing to watch. It is simply exquisite! 

 You will utilize all techniques of painting with salt, alcohol and watercolor.  In this painting we will use the gold, copper and silver resist as a decorative element rather than a mean stop the dye to pass through. 

The design will be yours as you will have all kinds of autumn leave patterns to help you compose your very own and pleasant painting.  

Signed by the artist on a whopping 22 x72 inches painting, you will have the opportunity to wear your art as a scarf, make it a present for the holiday or simply hang it on your wall.

For the safety of everyone we recommend social distancing and masks are required. 

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy.  Please feel free to contact us at 419.756.1700 or email for more information on the project.

Thank you for your support of Mansfield Art Center.

A waiting list will be available.
