  • Hello Annette
    thank you for your response!
    screen printing with acid inks azo base are used.
  • When using the microwave to set your Acid Dyes it is necessary for the entire scarf to be wet/damp. Dry areas of the fabric are at risk of burning easily in a microwave. This is not a method I would recommend for painted pieces.
