Setting in the microwave for all painting techniques with DEKA-Silk and DEKA-Silk outliners

What you need:

Silk, glass bowl suitable for microwave with glass cover, paper towel, plastic foil to cover the working area, water atomizer, disposable gloves, pipettes, yogurt beaker or mustard jar, cotton pads, ironing net (without cotton border, f.i. polyester).

- Please note that accidental spots of DEKA-Silk - even if not heatset - cannot be removed.

- First remove the label from the silk, then wash the silk thoroughly in order to remove the sizing. Place the silk on a plastic foil and moisten it entirely until the silk is damp for ironing. Now choose one of the following techniques:

DEKA-Silk Immersion Technique

Pour the contents of a DEKA-Silk container in an empty, clean yogurt beaker. Fold or roll the silk and dip it completely into the paint (use disposable gloves). After the silk has absorbed the paint, take the silk out and squeeze it out carefully over the yogurt beaker. Unfold the silk, place it loosely into the glass bowl and start with the setting.

Drip Technique

Fold the silk, place it into the glass bowl, twist rosettes into the silk, drop DEKA-Silk (3-4 shades proceeding in order from light to dark) with a pipette directly onto the silk and start with the setting.

Stripe Technique

Dip a cotton pad into DEKA-Silk, apply varying colour stripes onto the silk, place the painted silk folded or loose into the glass bowl and begin with the setting. 

Outliner Technique

Spread the painted silk (after 24 hrs. drying time) on your working area, moisten it entirely, place the ironing net on top of it so that there is no silk on silk contact while rolling it up. Place it into the glass bowl and start with the setting.

Setting for these techniques

(Please follow the safety instructions of the microwave manufacturer and do not leave the appliance unattended)

· First check if the silk is well moistened (if necessary, add 1 tablespoon of water), then put the glass cover on loosely. During the setting the glass bowl becomes very hot. Use potholders and carefully let the steam escape, while lifting the cover.

· Heatset a minimum of 2 x 2 min. (for Outliner Technique: 2 x 3 min.) at 600 watt. After the 2 (or 3) min. check if there is still enough moistness (condensation drops) in the bowl. If not, add another tablespoon of water or spray with the water atomizer over the bowl, not in the bowl. The silk may not be thoroughly dry before the setting process is finished.

· The setting is complete, when the silk is dry. As long as it is damp, the setting process must be continued in 1-2 minute steps (check by sight!). Take the dry silk out of the bowl, hold the silk under running water, squeeze it out and iron it out at cotton setting.

Setting of very large silk pieces (f.i. curtains) with DEKA-Silk Immersion Technique

With larger silk cuts, f.i. 3 m length, the setting times of the coloured silk get longer. Please carefully follow the above instructions. The silk pieces have to be squeezed out carefully (wear long rubber gloves), unfolded and put loosely into the microwave glass bowl. Then you start with the setting in several steps until the silk is dry. When there is a lot of moistness, you pour off the water and wipe the cover dry inside. After setting remove the surplus of paint by rinsing with water, wring out the silk cut and iron it out. Your material is ready!

Work in 3-minute steps until the silk is dry (check by sight!).

The setting times depend on the moistness, quality, absorbency and size of the silk piece.
