‘Christmas Pudding’ silk painting by Tom Yendell

Learn the basics of silk painting – stretching fabric over a wooden frame, drawing out your image in indelible pen, creating your lines with gutta (which stops the inks from bleeding into each other, like a barrier), and fill in with colour ink.

Christmas Pudding Silk Painting by Tom Yendell

Silk is a medium Tom enjoys because it’s quick and easy to paint and good for beginners where you don’t have to be particularly precise. But if you prefer to use an alternative painting method, you can still follow the design with whatever you have at home.
