This is one of the first pieces I made. I bought someone else's dyed tussah silk in various colors from Etsy and layered it with some wool roving to get the layered effect taught in the book. It ended up being very thick which I don't like very much. But it got me hooked and I started to experiment...
|Purple and Pink silk paper - 36"w x 24" h|
This piece is gossamer thin and made with dyed green mawata caps. I inserted dried rose pieces into the paper. Ignore the masking tape at the top where I taped it to the window to show the transparency.
This silk paper is made from mottled green mawata caps and inserted mulberry paper leaves bought at Michael's. I like how the color from the leaves bleeds. This piece was made using Golden Gel semi-gloss heavy medium.
