Dr. Ph. Martin's Spectralite
is an excellent paint for marbling & airbrushing. It leaves no 'feel' at all on silk and gives knock-out colors. Can be used on paper, fabric, leather, film, just about anything. It has more pigment than other paints so it covers better and faster. Water based, non-toxic, and very fast drying. High quality pigments make it usable in mechanical pens. It is highly resistant to fading from light with no fixing. For fabrics that will be washed, it must be used with a heat set additive or an air fix catalyst.
3 WAYS TO USE
For artwork that won't be washed, it's lightfast and water-resistant when dry. Nothing more needed.
Make it washfast and drycleanable by adding a little Heatset Additive to the paint before you start. When dry, heatset briefly (1 minute) with an iron. That's it.
Make it washfast and drycleanable by adding a little catalyst to the paint before you start. This is the best choice for silk. Nothing more needed.
We have cheaper paints, but it's what your work looks like in the end that counts.
Try it on silk it's fantastic!
