Riassunto: Explaining the basic techniques of silk painting, which can be surprisingly simple, this book shows how even the complete beginner can soon be producing attractive designs for items such as scarves, cushions and pictures. There are step-by-step explanations of gutta, wax and marbling, detailed advice on choosing between the various types of dyes, and coverage of steaming and fixing, using colour, and designing and developing your own ideas. Throughout the book there are projects to follow, and suggestions to help beginners to develop their own creative skills.
Recensione: An excellent primer on many variants of silk painting, The Silk Painting Workshop provides in-depth coverage of materials, techniques, color principles, and design sources. Beyond explaining the methods extremely well and supplying a beautiful and diverse selection of projects, author Jane Venables is skilled at expounding upon the nebulous doctrines of successful color combinations and good design. The typical painted silk piece displays flowers or abstracts; Venables also has a way with feathers, fish, birds, geometrics, and landscapes, and she helps us believe we can learn too. Her marvelous sense of design and glorious ability with color pervade every page, making even a quick glance through the pages an irresistible enticement to trying out this art form. --Amy Handy
