This practical guide to painting on silk can be used by the complete novice as a course for beginners, or by those who already possess some painting and dressmaking skills as a source of ideas and reference. Whatever the standard of expertise, one does not have to be a skilled artist to practise and enjoy this unusual craft. The three techniques used in silk painting are really very simple and step-by-step instructions are given in the text. The next stage of the book enables a beginner to complete and assemble the many varied and beautiful projects, featured in separate sections. These include small and simple items, such as greetings cards or brooches, to large and complex designs, such as haute couture fashion garments, which should be of interest to the more confident painter and semi-skilled needlewoman. Instructions are given, together with easy-to-follow diagrams and full-colour photographs. The last section of the book is devoted to a selection of drawings and motifs, suitable for design ideas.
