Experienced dying and block printing on cotton, want to use same process on silk. Advice?
  • I've been using various lightweight cottons (floursack, etc), dying them with RIT and other fairly simplistic fabric dyes. Then I block print them using speedball fabric ink. I'd like to transfer the ideas and processes to silk, to make scarves. I'd love any help you can offer about what products I might try, from where I might buy some sample amounts of silk to the dye and the block printing ink. I'm interested in a natural rolled edge, more them hemming.
