Silk Painting Portrait Workshop – ONE DAY ONLY

Award winning silk painter, Vicki Damon, is offering her One Day Only Silk Portrait Painting Workshop.

Saturday, October 19, 2013, 10:30 – 2:30 at Ralph’s Art Supply, Melbourne, Fl.

This class is a very in depth silk painting workshop focusing on portraiture.

We will use the techniques necessary to mix paint on the silk to create skin tone. We will also focus on shadow, and detailing that makes a silk portrait so unique.

The portrait silk size is 22x22. You must bring your own portrait to paint. Please consider using a larger portrait size, for we will be focusing on details. Also think about using a portrait that includes shadows and some props such as hat, flower, glasses, etc, as that creates interest and depth.

You will also paint a silk scarf using a different technique that will allow you to paint a somewhat impressionistic painting right onto your silk. It is amazing what you can create by using this technique.

The cost of this class is $125.00; with a $50 deposit required to hold your space in this very sought after workshop. All materials are provided; stretchers, stainless pins, all silk, all dyes, resists, brushes, etc.  You will take home your stretchers, silk and pins.

If you have any questions regarding this workshop or would like to sign up, contact Vicki Damon at
