Pebeo Setasilk

Introduction: These are water-based colours, that are vivid and intense and are ideal for painting on silk. Due to their fluidity, seta silk colours easily fuse on silk.

Setasilk is used as a traditional colour and used on all types of silk: twill, pongee, crêpe de chine, georgette, damas etc. They're very easy to use and can be fixed simply by ironing. Setasilk colours can be used for all silk painting techniques: outlining, salt dusting, watercolour on dry or damp silk, crackling wax or drawing wax batik, Mahajan etc. They keep the silk’s flexibility and offer a rich, refined and very bright palette.
