Answer: Silk painting supplies in Paris

Hi Jasbir,

If you’re looking for a shop which will deliver to your home, there’s a fantastic place online called Aubijoux. The owner is very helpful and they ship their goods all over Europe. You can see all their products on their website:

I don’t know if other shops deliver, but you can ask them :

Sennelier Art store
3, Quai Voltaire
75007 Paris, France
+33 1 42 60 72 15

Many art supply stores sell products for painting on silk, simply ask for “les produits pour la peinture sur soie” (“products for painting on silk”).

Marabu is an excellent brand available in France, and Dupont is probably the most famous French silk dye.

Wooden frames are available in all art supply stores across France, they press together at each corner very easily – you can see a sample in the photo above.

There are some fantastic French books on silk painting, quite a few written by Lydie Ottelart.

I do hope this helps – enjoy your silk painting!

If you need lessons, I’ll be teaching classes in Paris in July/August 2009.

Have fun,

Thank you Teena!
