Silk Painting Tips

Q: When I apply gutta it comes out too fast and looks messy. What can I do?
A: It can help to put your tube of gutta in the fridge for 20 minutes before use. This will make it easier to apply. You could also try using a fine nib.

Q: The paint seems to leak through my gutta. Why is this?
A: Your lines may be too fine. We recommend that once you have applied your gutta and it has dried you can test the line by putting a dash of water next to a line that you think may be too thin. If the water seeps through then you need to go over the line with gutta. Also if you are using thick silk ( ie above 10m/m you may need to apply gutta on the back as well as the front.)
