5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful color, clear instructions, ideas for new technique, 15 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Silk Painting: The Artist's Guide to Gutta and Wax Resist Techniques (Practical Craft Books) (Paperback)
I thought this book was outstanding. It is a comprehensive manual describing the more popular techniques of silk painting, properties of silk, color, design, etc. This would be a good book to start with as a beginner. Advance painters would find useful info too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silk screen printing, 13 Sep 2011
This review is from: Silk Painting: The Artist's Guide to Gutta and Wax Resist Techniques (Practical Craft Books) (Paperback)
As this book was first published in 1999 some of the technical information refers to dyes which are not water based which most are now. However, the explanations of the various techniques, and the colourwheel for the novice are clearly set out, and easy to follow. The illustrations are very colourful and inspirational. A good buy for both beginner and those with some experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moyer's two books are the best available on silk painting., 3 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Silk Painting: The Artist's Guide to Gutta and Wax Resist Techniques (Practical Craft Books) (Paperback)
This is Susan Moyer's first book. It covers the basics in great detail. Anyone who is serious about silk painting should memorize this book. Moyer is generally considered to be the the best English-language author on silk painting.

This review is from: Silk Painting: The Artist's Guide to Gutta and Wax Resist Techniques (Practical Craft Books) (Paperback)
This book is trully inspiring, the author suggests reading all the way through the book first before starting a silk painting esp if you are a novice, which i found to be good advice and was not difficult as it was excellent, she gives detailed descriptions on various techniques that will give you confidence and encourages you to experiment and adapt them to your own practice, with a number of examples by talented silk painters.
I will be starting my own first silk painting after reading this shortly, and with all I know now I am sure I will have alot of fun doing so.
