  • Hi! Sometimes I think the success of using metallics is dependent on unseen factors - like how your hold your tongue - just kidding, or course! If I am going to play with metallics, (I work on methylcel, mostly fabrics, and various acrylics) I often mix a thicker size - say 4+TBSP of powder to a gallon of water or even more. That seems to help the tiny flakes stay on the surface. I...

  • Hi! According to one of our list gurus, Jake Benson (check the archives of this list), there are some 50+ different types of methylcel, and each one probably has its own specific dispersement requirements. Some of the M/C offered by book binders do not apparently need anything to disperse. Even the M/C's available from Dharma and Pro-Chem are apparently different, with the M/C from...

  • Hi! Welcome to the magic and mystery! I marble scarves with methocel all the time, and occasionally use Dye-na Flow. My experience is very similar, and especially with the magenta, it seems to dry on the surface of the size very quickly, and I get jagged edges (called crazing). Other times, I get wonderful water-colory effects, and some colors won't spread, but if they are the 3rd...

  • I can be making upwards to 75 scarves per day with the customers. Now THAT is a demo I would love to see! Where do you do shows? And I wonder if the colors you describe as "less vibrant" are because you are applying less paint to the size? I am pretty much an eye-dropper person, FWIW.

  • Just for giggles, try one more time with one of the surfactants - Photo-Flo, or the Golden Acrylic Flow release - just one drop at a time, or dilute it - say 1 droop in a teaspoon to a tablespoon of water and let me know. Now I am curious as well - I have a bunch of the spectralites, but have never tried them, and at the moment have no time to play . And yes, I did mean the dish...

  • Hi! I have not tried the Spectralite and catalyst - but would make the following suggestions: instead of just diluting them (assuming you used distilled water) I would try a drop of Photo-Flo or Golden's Acrylic Flow release as a surfactant. Add just one drop at a time, and note that too much surfactant can also cause paints to drop. These two surfactants can be diluted if one drop...
