Silk paintings can be exhibited as wall hangings, they need to be decorated on a heavier silk with a hanger at both the top and bottom so that it will not float around or move out of alignment to easily. The real disadvantage of a wall hanging is that the silk will get dirty and may have to be removed from the hangers and re-washed and ironed frequently.
It is best to frame silk painting under glass. Since we do not want the glass to touch the surface of the silk, we need to use a double or triple mount. We should also use acid free materials. All these points need to be taken into consideration when getting framers to work on your Silk painting.
There are other methods where you can stretch the silk over a frame or canvas. The wall hanging or framing under glass still gives the best results. To have this process done professionally by the framers, drop us a call or you can walk-in to our shop located at Bukit Timah Plaza. With the convenience of the new downtown MRT lines and the public buses in Singapore, you should reach us in no time.
