Frame Silk

How do I frame Silk Embroidery Painting?

I have hand embroidery arts that need to be stretch and frame. What is the best method of framing?
How do i stretch over a frame bar without having the silk to be wrinkle? Is there an illustration anywhere or a website that show an illustration?

There are different methods depending on the size and value. Since you did not put a size I will assume it is under 20x24

I would use a piece of foam core board covered with pelon (thin pelon) The board should be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch small that the fabric. Stretch the silk over the board and using silk pins or the "U" shaped jewlery display pins, pin the silk to the foamboard into the side of the board. Be sure pins are sharp if they feel like they are catching in the silk throw away that pin...the tip is bent.
Lay the silk on the board, line it up straignt and start with the center of each side. (top bottom, side side) Then work your way out from each center using the pins (you are pinning into the edge of the board. Watch for wrinkles as you go You are pulling snug to the outside and toward the corner.
The pins will stay in place unless you want to turn the whole item over and then sew from side to side and top to bottom with sewing thread very close together and then remove the pins. The thread will hold the fabric stretched. This is very time consuming and stitches should be very close together, but is the proper way.

You can mat it and frame with glass as long as the glass is not touching the silk. If it is, it could cause sweating and water deposits on the silk. If you lay the glass on the silk it will cause wrinkles. and if you leave off the glass it will get dirty from dust, smoke, cook fumes etc.

Your frame shop will know how to use "frame space" and be able to put glass on it and not have it touch.

If you have further questions let me know. lynarts@flash.net

Large items should be done on foamcord but fastened to wood stretcher bars. Again cover the area with pelon first. It just looks better with a little padding (nothing thick)
