Javana brilliant water-based silk paints penetrate deep into the fabric leaving a soft handle and drape. These translucent flowing pigment-based paints are intended for light-coloured natural fabrics but can also be used on fabrics with UP TO 20% synthetic mix. The intermixable colours are suitable for the majority of established silk-painting techniques including water-colour effects, serti (working within outlines), salt, spray and airbrush techniques.
Once fixed with heat the colours are lightfast and wash-resistant.
