Silk Painting Photos: Sketching, Dyeing, Salting, Rolling & Loading the Steamer

Sketching on a large silk square with a water soluble quilters pencil. The light grey lines will disolve when the finished painting is washed

Sprinkling salt on wet dye for a cool effect.
Dribbling alcohol onto the dried dye, another cool effect

Rolling the silk in interfacing and paper for steaming

The rolled silk ready for the steamer
Don filling the steamer with water and loading the silk roll
The loaded silk roll. The steamer is then covered with layers of paper &
a towel to avoid drips landing on the roll

The finished silk painting hanging in the sun drying
