Start silk painting 1, sketching

Measure the size of your silk.

Using a dark pen or pencil to draw a sketch of what you want to paint. This does not need to be accurate. Free hand gives it a more lively feeling.

Try to avoid to much fine details and fine lines. They are not easy for your next step - outline with gutta serti.

I love your work! You make it look so easy to work with children. I am teaching a class in the silk painting this summer, and appreciate your tips on painting with children.
What exactly is gutta sari? Is it some kind of product I can buy? Thank you!
