Silkpainting Care:

Silk requires a bit of care to keep the artwork in good condition. Keep the silk out of direct sunlight, since UV can degrade the dyes used in the painting, and will cause colours to fade. Care should be taken that water does not get spilled on the silk, since water affects the protein structure of the fabric and causes it to become rougher and lose its smoothness. If the silk becomes dirty or gets water on it, dry-cleaning the silk at an ordinary dry cleaner's will restore the silk to its lustrous appearance.
