The Silk Painting Studio Workspace

If you’re thinking about turning a part of your home into a space dedicated to silk painting, this tour of my humble little studio might give you some ideas.  If you already have a silk-painting space that you love, send us a picture or comment on your ideas.  Pour a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and come on in!

    I called my husband in here to watch your presentation – and he was VERY impressed. What a professional you are!!!!!!!!!

      Thanks!!

    Thanks for sharing your studio, it is so nicely done. Can’t wait to see what’s in the chest. I am thinking about changing my spare bedroom into a studio, so this has given me some good ideas. Currently I use my kitchen granite counter, which works out quite well, except for having to tote my supplies from the garage. One thing we do share in common is an art dog. I’ve included Maggie’s picture.

      OMG Maggie is too adorable! Buckley isn’t too sure though, he’s sitting in my lap right now staring at her picture and growling!! I believe he thinks there are dogs in this computer and he doesn’t like it one bit… What breed is Maggie? She looks a lot like Sally, who is a Cavachon (cross between Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon). How would we create without our art dogs!

      • Diane

        Maggie is a Bischon mix. Not sure what she is mixed with, but sure is a character. We got her from a Bischon rescue group.
        Sorry Buckley got upset that Maggie was in your computer .

        • pglose

          LOL! I will pass that along to Buckley… but tell Maggie not to feel bad, he doesn’t like any of the dogs he sees on his computer or TV. Thanks for sending her picture, she’s a doll. I hope more people will do the same!

    Did you do the fish on your wall? If so, are you planning any tutorials on how to make these?

    • pglose

      Hi Diane, yes I did make those fish. When I did my first art show, I looked around my tent and was struck by how “flat” everything was. So I became inspired to make some 3-D pieces with silk. I had never seen it done, so just figured it out as I went. They are a blast to make. I do have plans to feature them sometime in a blog, or maybe even an ebook. Thanks for your interest.

    Your studio is so inviting! Thanks for sharing your ideas with us. The tables on wheels are perfect for silk painting! I can’t wait to see what is in the storage chest.
    Sally and Buckley are just precious!

    • pglose

      Thanks Terri! I will get that next blog out asap… lots of people are asking what’s in that chest! It’s an awesome storage solution.

  • Love your studio! Such an inspiration. I shared your video with my husband and he got that frightened look in eye. All I need is one wall knocked down…..

    • pglose

      Ha! Go for it, Karen! If you can just get him to knock down that one wall, it’ll take on a life of its own and snowball from there. Good luck! :)
