Check out the work of Nancy Chinn and SHe does some fantastic work with paper and transparent fabrics -'nylon' among others. The banners I create are primarily pieced and sewn.

            I'm hoping someone can give me suggestions for what materials to look for. I am going to work with another artist on some banners for a worship shape and have no experience with silk painting, but we agree this is the approach & look we'd like to try. My questions are: what are some materials (fabric & paint wise) to use which might be less costly & still look great? These banners will end up being somewhat sizable, and we will experiment a bit ahead of time, but want to hold costs down. What are potential glitches to be aware of?
        Thanks in advance!
