      You should have very GOOD luck using silk.

      It usually always works, its very expensive but worth it.

      Remember not to iron or heat set until you have nuetralized/removed the alum from the fabric or it will turn into a strong acid and desinegrate the fiber, just a slight hand wash shjould do it drip dry.

      If your still not sure I can help ya make a nuertal solution.

      Marble the silk and post the results! Cant wait! enjoy!

      I just tried it yesterday. It was not as sucessful as I would have
      liked, I used golden acrylics and carageenan. I was wondering if anyone
      has had any sucess in marbling silk?
