Les Artisan D'Angkor - Part 2

Silk Paintings - Here are some of the techniques used to trace a picture on to the silk, so that it can be painted and framed! Well the motifs are mainly relate to the stories of Buddhism teachings.
Over here, we observed the lady paint one of the pictures. She uses a tiny brush and apply the paint evenly onto the thin silk fabric. Interesting isn't it?

This lady here is using a pen to retrace back some of the lines onto the silk fabric. It's suppose to touch up some details as well. Intricate details are seen here in the picture, and lots of gold paint are seen too in the picture.
