You can paint on your fabric stretched horizontally slightly above your work surface or laid flat on it — your choice. Both ways yield great results, albeit different. Stretched fabric lends itself better to spray-painting techniques and direct painting with brushes: paint doesn’t pool and you can distribute it more evenly. The surface also tends to dry more evenly, and you can even speed up the drying time with a blow dryer or fan, if you wish. On the other hand, laying the fabric right down on your work surface is the only way to go when you’re stamping, stenciling, or silk-screening.

It often creates a veiled, mysterious quality as well.

Available at craft and art-supply stores, these are sold in pairs and are easily assembled by fitting the tongue-and-groove joints together. You can also purchase stainless-steel pushpins made specifically for stretching fabric. These pins will not leave rust spots or little holes in your fabric. There are also flat, three-pronged silk thumbtacks, but they are not made of stainless steel and may leave rust on your fabric. Additionally, these are not easy to remove if you want to restretch your fabric while you are working.
