I tried silk painting using a new to me method - with freezer paper today. I did an ink outline on the freezer paper reverse, then ironed the silk to the wax side, then traced the ink outline with gutta on to the silk, then painted. I wanted to see if it would be easier and quicker than the usual method of stretching silk on a frame. This is the freezer paper result:
I don't think the results with the freezer paper are as good as my usual method, although hubby disagrees. To be fair I did rush this as it's only an experiment but I think it untidy and didn't like the way the ink moved with a backing on the silk.
This is my benchmark stretched silk on frame method, which I like better and think is neater.
Conclusion: freezer paper would be useful for painting large areas in colour blocks, i.e. scarves, but not so good for gutta outlining.
I rarely come across people who silk paint (apart from you Nancy), wonder if anyone has tried freezer paper and what you thought of it.
