@cygnetsilks ooh that’s lovely
@cygnetsilks This is unbelievably stunning.
@cygnetsilks just said, “holy CRAP!” out loud into my empty house.
You are GOOD at this, wow.
Wow, thanks! You're sweet! It is very fun. :)
@cygnetsilks oh wow that's gorgeous!
@cygnetsilks it's beautiful! Are the outlines made using a resist kind of technique, or just careful painting?
Thanks! I use a water based resist in a little squeeze bottle to draw the lines, and then silk dyes to paint in the colors. There'd be no way to get a clean line without the resist, with the way the dye spreads. Unless you used a thickener or something but that's a whole different approach. :)
