I've done this before, but I can't remember much about it. I used to stretch my silk on embroidery hoops to do spot designs, and pin it to foamcore board to paint all over the piece. The important thing is to keep it suspended ABOVE the surface of the board... and keep in mind that when the silk gets wet it'll be heavier. A commercial silk stretcher might work better.

Here's some websites. Many have "how to" sections...

Hope this helps!
