Getting Your Heraldry On (Silk Painting)
Teacher: Archos Aline de Seez
Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm
Have you ever wanted to have one of those fluttery banners, bravely flying over your encampment?
But painting silk seems so very scary.
Well in my quest to have people “Get their Heraldry On” I am offering a simple introduction to painting silk. We will also cover period banners.
Students should bring a simple design to paint approx 8″x8″. (Not too detailed). If you have a device then perhaps bring one element of it to use. We will be painting a 10″x10″ silk square. (I will be supplying the pre-framed silk square, dyes and resists for you to use) If you have watercolor brushes (or finely pointed brushes) then please bring them.
