Silk Painting with Embroidery Embellishments
From the preliminary drawings my wife sketches the image she wants onto silk fabric. She adjusts the design to fit the size of the surface she is working upon. She then follows her silk painting procedures using gutta and French dyes. Once the painting is done she free-hand and free-hand machine embroiders to accent the image. Where she wants to add sparkle, she adds beads, etc.
