About Silks By George
Silks By George is a collection of HandPainted silk designs. I use 100% silk each piece starting off white and being transformed into colourful works using several techniques. The dyes are procion H liquid dyes, steam fixed to create a complete bond with the fibre. Some of the techniques employed include direct painted, gutta resist, soy wax resist, discharge paste and over dyeing. The dyes are painted by brush on the stretched silk, one piece at a time. The steaming process takes two hours and each piece is washed to remove any excess dye, making the silk handwashable at home.
