WhyHello
« on: December 09, 2006 10:17:06 PM »

HM okay well for X-Mas I want to stencil on a tie for my dad.
So I just found this plain silk tie from target
http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=br_1_16/602-0404383-7799821?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B000CRMP0O

But I don't know if it would work to stencil acrylic on silk and then iron it? Can you even iron silk??

What about acrylic mixed with textile medium?

Please help~

art should not exist for the sake of itself

i just did a tie myself...i used a 1-1 mix of acrylic and textile medium, like you thought, and heat set it after it dried. make sure to use a press cloth of some sort between the iron and the item just in case! Good luck!
