Jill Kennedy is the well known silk paint artist and co-auther of "Silk Painting - New Ideas and Textures". She is also a great teacher! Jill's lively presentation and well organized format makes this how-to DVD a joy to watch. She's very clear, concise, and her lovey British accent is a joy to listen to. The techniques she covers are perfect for beginners through intermediate silk painters and include getting set up, water, salt, alcohol, and sugar techniques; she also demystifying things like thickeners, discharge agents, anti-spread, waxes and gutta.
