marbled silk scarves
- When I make marbled silk scarves, I wash the scarves, then alum and iron
them. Then I use acrylic paints thinned down on either carageen gum or
methyl cellulose mixed as a gel in a tank. I would think you can buy
acrylic paints in the UK. Then I let them hang for a day, then rinse them,
put them in the dryer for a half hour, then iron them to finish heat setting
There are numerous books and 2 good dvd's showing how to marble.
