Wax / Batik Technique: Silk Painting with Jill Kennedy

DVD Title: Silk Painting with Jill Kennedy Jill Kennedy is the famous UK author of several books on her favorite art — silk painting. In this DVD she demonstrates 10 of her most called upon techniques for creating fantastic designs in silk. In this excerpt she demonstrates how wax often is preferential to gutta or other resists for it’s ability to contain or hold colors and be used in larger areas while providing similar effects to gutta’s ability to contain dye within regions. Here she emphasizes the ability to work with dyes immediately after application and demonstrates how fun it is to use traditional Indonesian tjantings and Japanese brushes to create “Pisces” or the “twin fish” design in the scarf she is working on.
