ORIGINAL SILK PAINTINGS
& LIMITED EDITION CANVAS ART PRINTS
BY JO MAY
My originals are totally handpainted on pure white silk.
Mounted on foamboard & supplied with a mattboard ready to frame by the customer.
Please read the descriptions below carefully as each original is different.
How Silk Painting is done
Firstly a design is needed, either in my head or pre-drawn on paper.
The design is drawn onto the silk – a steady hand is needed as mistakes
cannot be undone!
The silk is dried for 6 hours and heatset. Now I can add the colours, layer
upon layer until I am happy. Another 6 hours drying, and then any touch-ups
or special effects can be done.
I usually let the silk rest for at least a day or two, And then into a commercial
steamer for half a day to set the colours.Then the silk is washed to remove any
residual chemicals, and pressed, and is now ready for framing in its mount.
I often paint special scenes for each area I sell in, making the images relevant to
the stores, and to the local customers.
I also do paint commissions, as long as I am given reasonable artistic license, but happy to base anything on your own ideas or photos.
Prints and cards may also later be made from commissioned pieces.
