Jacquard’s Silk Colors are liquid dyes used primarily for direct application silk painting. The range consists of 20 intermixable colors—the essential rudiments for an infinite palette of vivid hues. Unlike European silk colors (which tend to be liquid acid dyes), Jacquard’s Silk Colors are modified fiber-reactive dyes. This allows for easier setting, better lightfastness and maximum washfastness.
