So I have been working on this custom order for 8 large silk paintings that will be used by an actor on stage. The four 36" x 36" paintings with words are done and now I am moving onto the 8 larger 54" x 54" ones and they are big pieces of silk in my small studio!
In the photo below I have put my sketch onto a transparency via the computer and I am using an overhead projector to transfer that sketch onto the silk.
In this photo I am touching up the sketch (This is actually a different drawing in this photo)
Below the resist has been applied to the entire drawing and I am allowing it to cure before I steam it. It will be rolled in interfacing and paper and placed in a silk steamer for 2 hours to set the resist lines.
