Update 2020: I’m currently working on new online silk painting classes. These products are no longer available. More details below.
I’m delighted to announce that our silk painting kits are at last ready. I’ve spent the past few months working on developing these and so they are fresh off the press, so to speak.
It was important to me to create a kit that reflected my painting style and so I made sure that the kit will allow you to create a mandala similar to one you would paint with me in one of my workshops.
The kit consists of a box of supplies to paint a mandala on silk satin – the Queen of silks and there is a full-length accompanying dvd which shows me painting a mandala from start to finish, demonstrating various techniques and sharing a great many tips as I go. That was the closest I could get to actually being there with you.
I would recommend buying both the dvd and kit if you are new to silk painting. If you have attended one of my workshops, you may not need the dvd. For all overseas customers, the dvd is the better option as you will probably be able to get supplies locally without having shipping costs and import tax.
The silk painting kit includes everything you need to paint a mandala according to the instructions on the dvd and comes complete with a pdf file with some main guidelines:
- 1 x 45cm x 45cm wooden frame
- 1 x piece of 45cm x 55cm silk satin
- effect salts
- 3 prong pins
- 1 vanishing fabric marker
- 4 x bottles of either silk paints or silk dyes (select option when buying)
- 4 x plastic mixing tubs with lids
- 1 20g tube of pebeo gold resist
- 1 mandala template (as shown in the dvd)
- additional mandala templates
- 1 pdf file with painting guidelines
- 2 paintbrushes
The dvd runs for 80 mins and shows a complete demonstration of me creating a mandala on silk. Please note that this video does not include a steaming tutorial. You will have the option of buying your kit with either iron-fix paints or steam-set dyes depending on whether or not you have access to steaming or have experience of it. I am offering to steam the first silk mandala free of charge if you send it to me with return postage at your own risk. You may have your own steamer at home or have already had experience of using a vegetable steamer.
