Hi matt emulsion will paint kn top of silk but like in all cases where redecorating the existing silk walls will need sanded to key the wall for further applications of any paint.

Will be very hard to cover silk with emulsion paint. The best way is probably to either use paint stripper to get it off the walls or undercoat it twice and then use emulsion
