Back to silk watercolours… card and new design pendant/brooch


Continuing on my quick painting in under 20 minutes a day (day 11) I have returned to my love of the flow of silk paints on silk in watercolour technique (no resist or anti-diffusant). The card is painted on a thick satin silk and the paints do not move freely on that. They almost need to be scrubbed in, for example, by using a taklon brush rather than my usual goat or squirrel mix. The large brooch, painted on 10 mommie Habutai, I have managed to adapt at the back so it can also be worn as a pendant. Simply add a chain of your choice. It sits very well and the findings for the pendant adaptation are not visible when it is worn as a brooch. Yay! very versatile! I will have these for sale ($30 I am thinking)……including a long chain but of course you can use your own preferred chain/cord or wear on a velvet choker using the pin from the brooch fitting. I loved chokers in the 70’s so they must be due to be back in fashion.
