Digital Silk Print – Steaming and Washing


After the print is completed it is rolled up in tissue to ensure that the fabric doesn’t touch any other part of itself as the ink can easily transfer.


It then needs to be hung up on the banister outside the workshop for an hour to dry.



After an hour of drying the next step is to roll the print up in steaming cloth and a cardboard pole to be steamed.






After the fabric has been secured by pins it is placed in the steamer, digital prints require to be steamed for a total of 30 minutes.




After safely removing the print and clearing away the steaming fabric etc the print is hung up and then can be taken home to wash at 60 degrees to ensure any excess ink has been removed.
