SILK PAINTS
-Silk is a delicate material and requires just the right touch. With Setasilk from Pebeo France you can easily paint on silk, since its colours are fixed simply by ironing.
-Use on all types of silk like twill, pong, crpe de Chine, crpe georgette and damask silk; Ideal for all silk painting techniques such as tie-dye, outlines, salt sprinkling technique, watercolour, sun technique, wax batik and mahaju technique
-Can be lightened/diluted using the Setasilk lightener or water; Stretch the silk on a frame or place on a fleece and fix with an adhesive, then apply the paint. Some silks require washing before use to remove the primer
-Wait until the colours are dry before fixing them. For fixing, iron the silk on the reverse side for 5 minutes at the cotton setting without steam. 48 hours after fixing, the decorated piece can be washed by hand and machine (delicate setting); retains the silk's flexibility and offer a palette of rich, refined tones and great brightness
