Enough about old ties.
Order new white silk ties from Dharma for about $4.00 a pop. Seal the top
with a light coat of watered down gesso before painting in acrylic or
fabric paint to keep the "hand" of the silk rather than turning it into a

Or don't seal, and silk screen with fabric paint.
Ooooh where do you get the Dharma silk ties for $4.00? I do silk painting
and need a source of silk objects to paint on. That's good to know your
method of painting them with acrylic so they can still be worn. Do you know
how I can get an adjustable silk frame to stretch different size scarves on?
A classmate from Germany that taught me silk painting and had a wooden 4
piece frame her husband made for her to stretch her scarves on. I have been
wanting to pull my silk paints out again, but hate fixing a frame for every
scarf size I make. Thanks ahead for any info.
