silk painting demo at "stars" quilt show

Here are some photos of dye-painting silk at this fall's Washington Stars Quilt Guild's amazing quilt show "Dancing With The Stars." 

...loading dye on a brush working dark to light...establishing dark colors first...later to push them around with lighter colors.

Water-based, non-toxic much COLOR in this small box!

"Dee Dee Song" came to be during a painting demonstration. Here the colors are still migrating as they dry.
