This is really cool looking!  So do you make a background first of collage and paint then overpaint it with black?
You got it! Smiley Thank you

Thank you! It is the center of the daisies and the rim of the daffodil-type flowers.

I made this yesterday. I plan on sending my profit from this artwork to my sponsored child in Ghana! It's done in acrylics and ink on foam board with a matte finish. It's 16 x 20 inches. I haven't been this excited about an artwork that I've completed in a long time! I hope you enjoy it as well Smiley

That looks awesome!

When I did it at college we made our own stretchers: get a set of 4 stretcher bars (either you can purchase them separate and assemble, or you could purchase a ready-made canvas and punch out the canvas bit) a bit larger than the size of your silk. Get a bunch of elastic (about an inch wide is fine) and cut it into 3 - 5 inch chunks. Staple them vertical to the stretcher bars evenly spaced about 2 inches, letting the excess length hang inward on the frame. Get a bunch of T-pins and poke them through the ends of the elastic and bend to make an L shape. Now you can get your silk and suspend it by poking the T pins through the edges and it will hang gently and be ready for painting!
 
Hope that makes sense.

Thanks so much! I am defiantly going to have to give this a go! Smiley

This is my second attempt at silk painting, it's so much fun! I really wish I had a silk stretcher, I feel like it would be really beneficial. I am finding that it's really difficult to get the background color an even tone... any tips? Thanks for looking!


8  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / 1st time silk painting attempt of silk chiffon on: December 04, 2012 08:04:02 PM
So I've been watching art youtube videos like crazy and came upon silk painting. I love it! Being an artist and loving textiles what better way to combine the two? So I bought a boatload of silk painting supplies from Dharma Trading and attempted it for the first time this evening. I'm not a fan of the chiffon, but used it as a practice round because it was the cheapest silk scarf they had. So without any further ado, here is my first and definitely not last silk painting. I would love feedback and advise!

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Faith Hope and Love in China on: August 07, 2012 01:00:06 PM


A couple years ago I spent a few weeks in China helping at an orphanage. This is an adaptation of a photo I took from when the orphans danced for us. Along the side I added the Chinese characters for Faith, Hope and Love. Right before our team left the orphanage, I broke down in tears. A little orphan girl wiped the tears from my eyes and told me to be strong.
This is done in watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and charcoal.
