this is kind of new for this bord. and it saddens me. I went to a YMCA camp in the rockies and they had silk painting there. i took the class. it was my first ever time. it was awesome. i highly recomend it if you get the chance.
my lines are sloppy but the colors are cool:
(Oh, and I  free-handed it)


(i uses dye-na-flow dye...in case you're wondering...)

Thanks for looking,
ERIN

I LOVE silk painting! I have several pieces I did in college that I could post and share with you if you like

I never did figure out how to frame or hang them to show them off though

So if anyone has any tips, please share!

It is gorgeous! Did you use gutta (I hope it's called that..) where the white lines are?

Silk painting is really fun! I've got a huge piece (which doesn't resemble anything because I can't paint..) lying around waiting for me to steam it so the colour stays.. It's been waiting for about three years now.. Any ideas on how to steam a piece that is 1,5x3m?

You just use a regular Iron, on the steam setting. You have to put something between the iron and the silk. Like a thin dishcloth or whatever.

You should be proud of your design. I love the birds. The colors and images remind me of my mom (before she went crazy, lol) because she loves birds and her favorite color was turquoise.
