Printing on Silk

I wanted to try printing mokuhanga on fabric.  A friend of mine gave me some really nice silk that felt just like paper.  I dampened it just like paper and printed using Holbein watercolor.  Here’s an image of the back of the silk, right after it was printed using a baren.  You can see that the image printed pretty well!

We don’t have the upgraded version of WordPress, so I can’t post a video directly here, but here’s a link to the video of me pulling the silk off (click here).
