Product Description
These are special three prong round metal tacks which are said by many experienced silk painters to be the best for holding silk onto a wood frame. But be careful, if wet they can stain the silk. They are made of steel and nickel plated. These are actually useful for stretching any kind of thinner fabric, not just silk. Great for stretching cottons for Batik and hand painting, just generally useful to have around!

Box of 100 tacks
Made in: GERMANY (DE)

Unfortunately like my other Silk Thumbtacks rust when I use Salt as part of my paintingdying process. Do you have any rustproof ones. I am trying the suspension hooks but I think they will go rusty too. Many thanks.

You were out of the stainless steel ones I usually order. I live in FL & the thunbtacks get rusty in the humidity here. We will see how long they hold up in this climate.

Great product. The little prongs do break off occasionally but I am pushing them through some pretty hard tough wood.

These are great securely holds silk with out to much stretching of fabric or holes that can become a problem later once you learn how to stretch the fabric properly.

Unlike push pinsthey lay nice and flat on the frame but they are very flimsy rarely lasting more than 3 or 4 times.
