This heavyweight 100% silk is made for fine-line or elaborate style Japanese or Chinese painting.
Unlike the traditional sized Chinese silk it will NOT wrinkle or bulking with wet painting techniques, so you need not stretch on a frame or mount on a board with tape.
This sized none-bleeding silk will not smear with wet painting but the excessive moisture will penetrate through to the underneath padding so I would put a wool felt under it to paint. You may also paint the back side with gouache and opaque watercolors. Suitable for all water-based media such as watercolor, acrylic ink or liquid acrylic etc. Thank Shay Wahl and Maribel Teklado for providing painting samples as seen in the pictures below.
Color: Off-white. It may vary a little bit from bulk to bulk(see picture). translucent and you may trace your design with or without a lightbox.
