From the back of the book:

Silk Painting provides an introduction to the colourful and exciting world of this popular art. Why not have a go? The art of silk painting is easy, relaxing, and the results can be magical. With a few basic materials - inks in the three primary colours, a brush, gutta, an embroidery frame and a piece of silk - you're ready to start. You'll soon be hooked, and keen to try the exciting projects described in the book. Some of these give basic instructions and are ideal for the beginner; others combine techniques for the more adventurous. All of them will allow you to make colourful hand-designed works of art.

Silk Painting is lavishly illustrated throughout with full colour photographs, and will provide an inspiration to students, amateurs, and established artists on silk.

Jenni Milne studied Art and Design in Birmingham. She started silk painting over ten years ago, and her business has grown, with much of her work exhibited in galleries here and overseas. She is now a director of an arts and crafts business.
