Hand Painted Silk Cushions



I painted these cushions on pure silk with Lefranc -bourgeois silk paints,and they can work out very expensive if you want a variety of colours. If you want you can buy a fabric medium that converts acrylic paint to fabric paint ,Golden Paints and Colourcraft sell it .I  sewed beads onto her brooch and on the flowers.I got the images from postcards my sister sent me.
