Some of you may know that I’ve been very busy over the past few months developing a new product, one I have been mulling over for such a long time now. Just over a week ago I gave birth to my very first silk painting kit and dvd tutorial entitled ‘How to Create a Mandala on Silk (this link takes you to the page with all the details)’. It really was a rollercoaster of a journey. And I learned so … Continue reading
I just love synchronicities and I love how they occur at the least expected moments. Recently I began exploring the world of gemstones starting off with a lovely green semi-precious stone in my collection. It was a mixture of chrysocolla and malachite. Well I went on to create a lovely silk which I now offer in my Etsy shop as made to order. This is it here. I was then sent a few photographs by my gemologer friend Starlene Breiter … Continue reading
We all have our habits and one of mine in silk painting is always to use the little plastic bottles with nibs for drawing my resist lines. I’ve never liked the tubes. It’s just one of those things. But a few days ago I realised I was going to have to order some more gold resist as I have a silk painting workshop coming up and saw that I didn’t have enough for the participants. So I went online and … Continue reading
It’s time to make the presentation again and I’m sure that the whole mantangle thing doesn’t need an introduction any more, but for those of you who are visiting for the first time, you might want to check out this blog post which explains where it all came from: The First Mantangle Challenge. Well this time round the set challenge was to include a circle, a triangle and a square. Any form of resist could be used as well as … Continue reading

Over the years I have painted a great number of mandalas on silk and, as you can imagine, I have a huge collection of photographs taken both during the process and afterwards of the completed paintings. And it’s with great joy that I often browse through the photos, picking pictures out here and there to illustrate writings and newsletters. Well the latest trip down memory lane was yesterday when I pulled out my Da Vinci Code soundtrack CD and suddenly … Continue reading
I’m proud to present the results of the second Mantangle Silk Painting Challenge, July-August 2012 here in this post. This is already becoming a regular feature and I was really able to feel the momentum build as we worked our way through our creations. For those of you who are new to the mantangle concept, please have a look at this post which explains how it all started: Create a Mantangle on Silk . This time the challenge required everyone … Continue reading
I just wanted to share this lovely photograph with you of the latest 3 silk mandalas that were painted in one of my silk painting workshops here in Bristol. I couldn’t resist displaying them out in the sunshine in front of the lilac bush before taking them in to steam them and then send them off to their artist owners. The wonderful part of it all is that when they have been steamed, the colours turn really translucent and take … Continue reading
