How to use the Arasilk silk paint
To create pastel shades, use the 027 white and the 005 medium to decrease the intensity of the colors.
Apply your paint with a brush on a stretched silk or on your fabric. Allow paint to dry. To fix the colour, iron fabric without steam for 5 minutes (or with a protective cloth between the iron and the paint) or put your fabric in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, at 130 ° C. Once the colour is set, gently wash the silk by hand in lukewarm water. Rinse with cold water.
Once fixed, the paint is water and light resistant.
Clean up by rinsing equipment with water.
