Silk Painting

Here is an interesting kind of painting called silk painting , which is quite easy to do . We use silk paints and not the normal fabric colours. These paints can be used only on silk fabric. Otherwise , ti is almost similar to fabric painting. Let's see hoe to do a silk painting.....


A piece of silk fabric( hanky or any other)

Silk colours(used fevicryl silk colours)


3D outliner(optional)

Pattern of your choice

Yellow carbon

Tracing paper


  1. Trace the design of your choice using traciong paper. Transfer onto the silk fabric using the carbon

  2. outline the design with gutta , this prevents the seeping og the silk paint to other parts of the fabric. Sice the silk paints are of thinner consistency. let it dry for 5-6 hours

  3. Apply the silk colours according to your heart's desire on the design.

  4. For fixing the colour on the fabric iron on the reverse side for 3-4 minutes only.

  5. To wash off the gutta, hand wash the fabric or dry clean after 2-3 days of drying

  6. You can use 3D outliner to give a 3D effect, but that is optional.
