Tulips - WIP woven watercolor
First strip weave at the top. I started with the right side going left across.
Second strip under first one. I'm looking and checking to be sure over and under, under and over match up.
Note I've used large paper clips at the top left and right corners. Be sure and push together for a tight fit.
On the right you can see the weaving working its magic while horizontal strips to the left show what is remaining of that painting. Be sure and save the bottom horizontal strip to be the last one woven as you'll want a straight edge.
Use 140 lb cold or hot press watercolor paper, not heavier 200-300 lb
Use sharp scissors
Place on white foam core or mat/mount board while assembling and weaving or other flat surface
Sign your name on both paintings in the same general area as one will show on the finished work
