silk bowls

It has been a while since I posted, so I am posting a few images today. I wanted to try making bowls from silk paper, and this is my initial attempt. I am using Jo Sonya's Textile Medium which is great for leaving the final product still feeling like silk, but it requires heat to set it, which is very difficult when the material is in a bowl shape (kind of hard to iron). I was using a balloon resting in a bowl for the basic mold, and after it dried, it was quite difficult to iron properly.
