You can paint on silk also without the resist. To prevent the flow of dyes you must treat the fabric beforehand. The most popular technique is covering the fabric with brine. The dye will not flow, however it will be difficult to apply the dye smoothly and there can be problems with covering larger areas. This silk painting technique is very suitable for silk pictures.
