Noah's Ark, Part 2

A little bit of painting and calligraphy practice before I stretch the large piece of silk... In order to paint the detail work, you need to apply some anti-flow to the silk before you paint.

Thanks for taking us along on this project. Can't wait to see what's next.

Can you paint the anti-flow on the silk over painted areas that are dry (but not steamed) without getting the 'blooms'?

Hi Dori and Nancy, thanks for commenting! Nancy, I find that you need to paint the anti-flow on an entire area, like up to a gutta line. If you only paint part of a pre-painted area with anti-flow, you will see a line (not usually a bloom, because it's a bit thick...)
