Is it possible to fix H Dupont steam fixed dyes in the microwave?
Yes - this kind of fixing is ideally suited to several techniques, such as the "crumpling technique". For this, soak the silk in water and vinegar and wring it out. Then drip H Dupont steam fixed paints onto the silk with a pipette or spread the paint with a brush. When finished press the silk gently. Put the silk into a microwave pot with a lid and fix it for 3 minutes (in a 600-Watt microwave). Let the silk cool off, wash out the surplus paint, finished!
