A word about Silk Gauze

Incredible detail can be obtained by using 54hpi silk gauze

Silk gauze is a wonderful fabric to work on. The holes are extremely clear and the fabric very fine and flexible. Therefore it moulds itself perfectly to working in small scale.

The largest (and therefore the clearest) gauge silk gauze included in my kits is 32hpi (hole per inch). I
hope to gradually increase the range of kits available.

Slightly finer, but still relatively clear to see (particularly with a good magnifier and light), is 40hpi silk
gauze. A surprising amount of detail can be obtained and the finished results are very effective.

48 hpi gauze is that much finer and my particular favourite. Silk thread has to be used in preference to cotton, which is too thick, but the needle used has a fairly large eye and is quite easy to thread. It's not too hard on the eyes either.

The finest is 56hpi. Incredible detail can be obtained from the finer mesh but you will probably find it necessary to use a magnifier and I always recommend good light for all sizes.
