I live in the Tacoma ,WA area. Just wondering where to go to buy silk painting supplies. Or is it better to buy online? Any suggestions? I wasn't sure if my local craft stores (Michael's or Joann) would have them.
My daughter and I are collaborating on a story, my doodles turn into illustrations and we write about them, hoping to turn it into a book someday... anyway, here is one of my drawings/doodles/illustrations.
I won't include the brief story about the 'Choosing Ceremony' that goes with it.
Back in the early 70's my aunt made a trio of these for my mom so I thought I would try to duplicate the pattern. It was all done with felt, craft glue, misc. trim, beads, sequins. My mom said she thought they originally appeared in Family Circle magazine, if anyone has ever seen them before I would love to hear about it!
They have supplies, equipment donated by local artists and companies, its $48/yr to join(negotiable for low income) and members can use any of the equipment or free supplies, etc. Definitely read the article to get more info, they also have a website with all the details:
