Stretching silk onto a wooden frame is an annoying step in preparing to paint on silk for many people. Marabu-Silk Easy Fix is a good alternative and offers totally new possibilities for silk painting. Simply spray Marabu-Silk Easy Fix on a firm, washable support and stretch the silk. Using this stretching method, painting techniques, which had been impossible until now on silk can be achieved: stamping, stencilling, lettering, painting.
Using this technique, quick and simple painting is possible anywhere, and you will experience a completely new feeling for silk painting. Marabu-Silk Easy Fix is a residue-free adhesive spray, which can be removed from the painting support with cold water or a wet cloth.
Here’s how it’s done:
1. You need a firm support (table, acrylic or glass plate etc.); if this is not washable, you will also need a washable film to cover the support first. Smooth the film over the support very evenly and stick with adhesive tape at one end. Then stretch the opposite side of the film tightly and stick. Use the same procedure for the sides until the film is smooth.
2. Spray Marabu-Silk Easy Fix on the support or on the film and allow to dry for approx. 5-10 min. Ensure the area is completely sprayed.
3. Roll the silk fabric onto a cardboard tube or similar to control stretching better.
4. Lay the rolled out silk onto the area sprayed with Marabu-Silk Easy Fix. Then gradually press the silk onto the painting support, brushing any small air bubbles away to the edges. Very small creases or air bubbles will not affect painting.
Never spray on the silk fabric - always on the support or the stencil.
After use turn Silk Easy Fix can upside down and spray until the valve is empty (until only gas escapes from it) so that the valve will not be clogged.
