The Perfect Christmas Gift Set For Budding Artists!

This set of chinoiserie paintbrushes and silk paper is perfect to begin creating stunning Chinoiserie art!

Use the three brushes on paper-backed silk to paint delicate art like silk Chinoiserie wallpaper, Chinese artworks, botanical style paintings and so much more!

The brushes are meticulously hand-crafted by master artisans and boast premium soft bristles and sustainable bamboo handles, the paper is silk fabric as you know it, but it's been specially treated for painting, and backed with paper.

Start your artistic journey by painting the luxurious way!

If you want to learn how to plan, create, and display chinoiserie artworks then my new e-book 'How To Paint Chinoiserie Art' will be a perfect addition to this set!


1 x Chinoiserie Detail Brush 

2 x Chinoiserie Paint & Blend Brushes

4 x Sheets Of Silk Paper

Each sheet measures 25 x 35cm

Perfectly smooth surface, no slubs, bumps or texture

Paint glides on creating a luxurious finish

Can build up layers and add fine details

Can be dyed with a thin watered down coat of paint (one that does not move when wet, such as acrylic paint).

Can be used with a variety of paint types but I mostly love gouache and watercolour.

This surface can accept extremely watered down paint.

Plan your design in advance and transfer to the silk when you are happy with the composition. If you rub out pencil lines on this silk, the rubber marks may be visible in some lights. 

Do not over handle, grease from hands can cause the paint to resist the silk. 

Silk colour is off white, slightly creamy in colour.

The silk paper is made by hand in small batches. Minor imperfections in the silk such as small marks or fibres are to be expected. 

Arrives to you rolled in a cardboard tube, please flatten by using a low heat iron, cover silk with paper to protect then leave to cool under heavy books.
