Another Sketch & Preparing the Silk

I did two more sketches for silk painting ideas but I only managed to photograph one. I think I will call this one "Watching and Waiting"

Cutting the silk to the right size for the paintings I am planning to do. Actually I tear the silk more than cut it because tearing it gives a nice clean line
Coating the silk with a special starch prior to transferring my sketches onto it

Hanging the pre-coated silk to dry


  1. thank you for your vision, Linda. What kind of starch do you use to prepare the silk?

    thanks in advance

    1. Hi Silk Reaper,
      I use Jacquard's No Flow to prep my silk.
