I decided to create on another surface other than silk.
In the painting to the extreme left( Jazz Cat) I used acrylics on a 100% Duck canvas stretched around a wooden frame.
In both paintings I used a stained glass technique.
In the 2nd painting( Sassy Cat) however, on the canvas I used French dyes.
I also want to direct your attention to the fact that we at Design Style Guide have started our own magazine:
