Chuppah, Part 2

Mery and Nick wanted to paint their own chuppah. So they came all the way from San Francisco, along with their friend Talya, to my studio in Southern California to do just that. Above, they are practicing applying "gutta," the resist material that will be the line work on the silk. And below, they are practicing painting on this small piece.
