-Silk paintings are created on white silk. The dyes are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk using a paintbrush. The dyes flow into the fiber and bond with the proteins, becoming a part of the silk thread. This is different than oil, acrylic, or watercolor paints which sit on the surface of the support. These paintings are steam set – locking the dyes into the fiber and making the color of the painting reasonably lightfast and washable.- (from Spin: Silk Painters International –
