Too strong and hard to control. Better results with heavy Kosher salt available at any supermarket.

Used this product when I first started using silk paints. Buying sea salt in bulk locally works better.

I like to use a heavier salt. The Silk Salt leaves dark dots on some of the silks that I use. Maybe it works better on some silks than others.

Perhaps I am too inexperienced. I sprinkled it on after handpainting on a flat surface. Although the silk was soaked I got tiny star-looking bursts that made it look like something was wrong with my technique. Not at all what I had hoped for!

We used it with silk paints. It's critical that your paints be very wet when you apply the salt. An extra squirt of water can help. It worked great with Setasilk. It did not work nearly as well with Dye-na-flow. I did some experimenting after our first fail and found that I got the best results in the blue tones but still it wasn't comparable to Setasilk and it required a lot more work to get and keep the paintmaterial wet enough. Also for both paints the slower it dries the greater the effect so you can use that to help refine your results. In the end I decided to stick to Setasilk if I wanted strong salt effects but use Dye-na-flow at other times because it's a great product and quite a bit less expensive than Set-a-silk. ALSO - if you see the Dye-na-flow video by Dick Blick and get excited about the project where they throw a silk scarf in a bag with some paints be warned! They skipped steps and left out some info. I left a comment there with details under the name Nancy Cornett. It will save you time and effort to read it. Hmmm I noticed some comments on the subject were deleted so I think I'll copypaste the relevant part here to make sure Dharma customers get the full scoop :) "As noted elsewhere in these comments because of time constraints they left out a few things. I understand you can't fit it all in but to help others let me point out that the silk scarf she pulled out of the bag had been dried then ironed then put back in a clean bag. We also discovered and were told by others that the salt won't work when you just toss it in the bag like that. I did it that way the first time and you could barely see any change. You need to apply it flat and leave it on as it dries. So we pulled out our scarves laid them horizontal (doesn't have to be totally flat in fact some scrunching adds to the character) THEN put on salt. You probably want to spray with some more water and or paint at this point because the Dye-Na-Flowsalt combo requires a lot of moisture."

I didn't have the success I wanted with it. Instead I had far better results using the pink Himalayan salt from a grinder.

The salt does not work on dyes as dramatically as on paints. When used with dyes the salt does its job but on darker colors only. In addition to the 'halo effects' the salt reacts with dyes to produce nice color shifts and extra shading. If someone does not the color to change don't use the salt with dyes. Joanna

Worked well and it doesn't take much so this will last a long time.

Didn't produce as much effect as I would have liked but it may be that I didn't use it correctly.

It works just fine. I am a watercolor painter so I am used to using salts occasionally and found this to work exactly like I had hoped.
