ACRYLIC ART

Many of you will know my extensive silk art offerings but my other love, acrylic painting, would like to step into the spotlight now, too. Here I am, delighted to share with you some of my colourful, abstract works of art which I have painted on stretched canvas, canvas board, and mixed media paper.

I love texture and crazy movement. I also love bright popping colours and multiple layers. And I adore using palette knives and large brushes to let the paints dance on the canvas. It’s amazing how the brushes and paints direct the way as long as I surrender to the guidance being given.

Layering has always been one of my main themes and has always been very evident in my silk art, too. There’s something so satisfying about building up a painting layer by layer, adding more and more colour and allowing the viewer a glimpse of the shades peeping through from the deep.

The good news is that you will soon be able to see many of my paintings. I am planning to offer my artistic creations for sale directly through art and craft fairs, exhibitions, cafes, specialist shops as well as online. You will be able to keep track of where my work is on display as I share my journey with you on these pages. So I’d love to invite you to please keep in touch as I literally unpack my work in preparation of the next phase of my artistic exploration. All details are on my Contact Me page.

    Complete beginner here and pretty clueless about the whole process, but very eager to learn the art of silk painting! Happy to find this resource, thanks for all the information.

    So I did a test piece with gutta for the first time and encountered a few hitches.

    I used Lefranc & Bourgeois Deco Colourless Gutta (water based.)
    Then applied the dye. Let to dry 24hrs.
    Then steamed in pressure cooker 10 minutes.
    After 24hrs I washed out the scarf with warm water & delicate detergent.
    The gutta was very difficult to remove. Had to scrub it & scratch it. This resulted in damage to the silk.

    Does my process sound correct to you? Is there
    an easier way to remove the gutta or a better brand?
    I don’t want to use solvent or dry clean.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
    Thank you

      Sorry but I didn’t get notification of this message until now. Regarding colourless water based resist, it can be very difficult to remove. Some brands just set like concrete, turn sort of crispy and won’t come out of the fabric. I worked mostly with metallic resists which stay in the fabric as part of the pattern. I always used Marabu Silk Art colourless resist. A tip for you might be to start working with soya wax and a tjanting. There are no fumes with this and most of it comes out during the steaming. Any residues can be washed out with shampoo afterwards. Try that out and see how it goes.

    Hello!

    We live on a boat in Tahiti, and are searching for mandala art we can attach to our large sliding glass door. The largest we find on line is about 6″… We are looking for something larger… Saw a link to a Youtube video or yours with instructions how to mount mandala stickers, but cannot find them on your site… Do you sell window decals, and if so, what sizes/designs? Thank you!
