It's great when you can have the luxury of spending several uninterrupted hours painting silk and drying it in the sun! It's especially a luxury in New England, when an unexpected warm and sunny fall afternoon showed up!
I know exactly what I'm going to do with these painted silk pieces...make a companion piece for the quilt I just completed, As Daylight Fades, which will be called At First Light.
This never happens!
I used a couple of large smooth boards that I cover in a kitchen-sized plastic bags as a work surface. This allows me to transport them outside easily for drying in the sun.
I'll show you some close-ups of the best results next week, along with some tips on how to get the look!
