This is so wonderful! Years ago I was in a silk painting factory in Thailand and they made it seem so effortless. I bought all paints and tools and realized I couldn't afford to learn to paint on silk. It was so difficult. You did a wonderful job!

Thank you so much for your very encouraging remarks! That is very kind of you. I went to college to study Art & Textiles. I now run my own workshops in various textiles techniques in North Wales - although I do travel all over too! :) Thank you again :)

Are you first painting this on silk and then quilting it? Helene

I tried sending a comment but it looks as if it didn't go through. Do you first paint on the silk and then quilt it? H

Yes, painting it first and then quilting afterwards on this occasion.

That is beautiful! What class did you take to learn how to do it?
