Absorbent Silk Salt can be sprinkled onto wet silk paint or dye to create star-burst, comet and other effects. On properly stretched (taut) fabric it sucks the dye or paint towards itself and cause a distinct effect. Can be used with Setasilk, Tinfix Design, Dupont, Jacquard Silk - Green and Red Label, also Dye-na-flow, to name a few. Does NOT work well with Fiber Reactive Dyes, which strike too fast to be affected much. It will also work on thinner smooth woven rayons or cottons with thin paints like Setasilk and Dye-na-flow, although not as dramatic, and again, the fabric has to be under enough tension, and the paint wet, but not in puddles. Even works with thicker paints like Jacquard Textile Colors and Setacolor, if you thin them with a little water.
Best effects are if the grains of salt are separate, not in clumps. Let fabric dry completely after applying salt, then brush off the salt, then "fix" the dyes or paints per their instructions.
