These dyes are for silk painting, and can be used straight from the bottle, for bright full strength colours or diluted with water to make soft pastel shades.
The colours can be mixed and matched to produce an endless range of colours.
To obtain defined patterns and shapes a physical barrier must be applied to the fabric, e.g. gutta gum, before applying the dyes.
The dyes may be fixed by COLD FIXATION (approximately 24 hours), or by the conventional steaming method.
Each 100ml bottle of Silk Dye will dye approxinamately 100gms of silk fibre/yarn or fabric if used at full strength.
