How to use Kniazeff silk colors
Kniazeff colors are steamable colors for silk and wool. 118 incredible colors make up this range of silk paints, to the delight of silk lovers!
These colors are fixed in the oven, following the manufacturer's recommendations.
Kniazeff paints are miscible with each other and non-hazardous under normal conditions of use. They can be used with or without setting, depending on the effect and pattern you want to achieve. Kniazeff paints are applied with a brush.
You can also thicken the color with a thickener, it will then be easier to work with without setting, like a "gouache" texture paint.
Some very concentrated colors need to be diluted:
- Dark tones, add 10% of a water/alcohol mixture
- Medium tones, add 50% of this same mixture
- Pastel tones, use a few drops of color in the WATER/THINNER mixture
