|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.
