I got curious about painting on watercolor paper with the paints I use on silk. Keep in mind, I said paints, not dyes. Silk paint is basically very thin acrylic paint, so I figured " why not?" This is the result, a 24" x 36" " watercolor" using silk paints instead of traditional watercolors. The silk paints have two advantages, they are already mixed, are liquid & they come in quantities to allow for coverage of large areas of a particular color with even coverage. They are also transparent, water clean up & are diluted with water, the silk paints are, in effect, plain watercolors. Artists use acrylics like watercolors all the time. At least you don't have to mix the tube colors with water & hope you have enought to paint a consistent color over a large area. These paints solve that problem. Anyway, here's the painting.
