Silk Painting at Portfolio Prep Camp

Photobucket It’s portfolio prep time this week at The Make Den! This is one of the most exciting times of the year. Students work on developing their own style, sense of colour, design and ‘personal brand’ while trying out new techniques and mediums – like this awesome silk painting by Adace! It was easy and quick but looked phenomenal when she was finished. We stretched the silk over an embroidery hoop to help it stay flat while she painted on it – hence the round shape of the painting. After the experimentation phase, we will decide if this is the right technique to use on her garment – it’s definitely a stunning effect on here!
