Blue Ocean Silks
Painting on silk is an ancient art form.

The silk is washed and ironed to remove any weaving starch.

Next it is stretched taut over a wooden frame and secured with pins.

The outline, or gutta, is applied from a fine nib, to form a barrier for the dyes.

Then the dyes are applied.

It is then heat steamed  to set the colours.
