Dyeing in a pot with steam fixable silk colours - really easy.
Here we will share a view simple tricks for creating soft colour gradients without a stenter frame or a brush.

On this picture you can see a long scarf out of Pongee 05, 180x90cm. Of course painting on a stenter frame is also possible, but rather unwieldy with such large formats.
So it's off into the cooking pot! ;)
To start with, the scarf is loosely pushed together breadthwise to create a bundle of 90cm in length. Then this bundle is dipped into a large pot with simmering water and the desired amount of grey steam fixable silk colour. The silk should already be moist before dipping the scarf into the pot. That is how these especially subtle colour gradients are created.
The other end of the scarf is subsequently dipped into violet silk colour.

Through the heat and moisture the colour is already fixed during the dip dyeing.
No additional steam fixing is necessary.
