Silk with simple color coordinated painting always looks classy. Here are a few examples.

Silk colors can easily blur and merge when used on a moistened surface, similar to traditional water color painting. When silk paint is used on a dry surface, it more or less bleeds to all sides, depending on the silk quality and later creates dry edges. Both the color coordinated water color painting and the tendency to create dry edges can be combined.

As with this pattern: A noble Jacquard with a simple diamond pattern was completely moistened and broadly painted. First, leave many parts empty and then blur the transitioning areas with a brush and water. After drying, thin lines were repainted with a small brush and a little bit of paint. With the help of a hairdryer these dry even faster and create especially sharp edges.
