With Jacquard Magic boards, silk painting is easy and accessible.
Experience the unique joys of silk painting without having to stretch or prep the fabric yourself. Magic Touch Boards are cardboard panels with paper-backed silk permanently adhered to the surface.
Combining the gratification of coloring with the meditative ease of silk painting, this class is perfect for adults of all skill levels.
This class features blank Magic Touch Boards so you can paint your own custom designs, as well as Jacquard Waterbased Resist and application accessories for making outlines. The boards measure approximately 8½" × 11" (21.6 cm x 27.9 cm). All tools and materials are included in the price of this workshop. You will be able to make two boards.
The boards are perfect to learn the art of silk painting. I will demonstrate how to stretch fabric to make silk items at home. You will leave with the skills and abilities to confidently purchase
any supplies that you want and make painted silk scarfs at home.
