Step 4 - Mounting Banner

Step 4 - Mounting Banner, originally uploaded by Jane Stockton.

This is the banner mounted onto the frame. I made the frame from some timber and wing nuts. As its for silk, it didn't need to be super strong.

The silk is held in place by some very nasty looking claws/prongs. Then elastic bands hold the banner to the frame. They give a good even tension around the whole thing.


Nice frame, it really seems to hold the fabric very well! I'd like to try that too :-)

What type of claws did you use?
