steam setting silk fabric
  • hello all,

    i am a belly dance costumer and i'm having some problems with getting dark solid colors. i am making veils, which is a piece of 8mm silk sized 90" by 47" and i will be attempting to steam these items tomorrow. how long should they be steamed to ensure that i get the most vibrant colors possible?

    thanks
  • Hello,
    The steaming sets the colors it doesn't necessarily make them much brighter. But normally an hour to 90mins should be adequate for a piece of fabric that size.
