2012. Rozome (Japanese wax resist silk painting). Damask silk, natural dyes, mordants. 100 × 28 cm.
This was my first attempt at using pigments. It was not totally successful (the pigments faded with washing), so I will try again. I know that it can be done, for John Marshall uses pigments to develop rich, colourful, silk stencil (katazome) paintings.
