Silk Painting Techniques

9th May 19

Art Update:

Girls in Year 5 and 6 have been working on silk painting this term. This is a really hard technique to master as the “Gutta”, which is used to draw the initial outlines, can be very hard to control – it’s a little like drawing with a tube of toothpaste!

Despite this challenging medium the girls have produced some amazing results. The Alligator silk painting is still in progress and is an excellent example by Sasha in Year 6. We are looking forward to seeing the finished design.
