Devore Velvet ~ perfect for those cooler days!
Do you fancy trying this exquisite decorative technique ? Take the easy way with our 'Kick Start Kit'.
Devore or 'burn out' describes the process of chemically destroying a component of a composite fabric, such as Silk/Viscosse Velvet.
In this case, the regenerated fibre Viscose, which is the pile, is removed in area's to generate a design, leaing the silk ground intact.
This can be as simple or complex as you desire.
Kit contains one metre of Silk/Viscose Velvet, instructions and chemicals to make the Print paste and Devore paste.
* please wear gloves and wear a face mask, do not breathe in the fumes.
** additional items required from your supermarket/chemist are a little Methylated Spirit and Glycerine.
