JoSonja Textile Medium - 8oz

Price: $12.95

We use the Textile Medium when making Silk Fusion.  For more information on Silk Fusion, click here.  Or go to Treenway Silks YouTube channel here

There are many types of textile adhesives available. Each has its own unique formula. We have experimented with more than a dozen of them. Each gives the silk fusion a different look and feel.

We have found Jo Sonja's Textile Medium & Gloss Varnish to be the most satisfactory--allowing the sheen of the silk to shine through.  

Textile Medium. The finish is waterproof and can be hand washed using a damp soapy cloth or sponge. The silk is flexible, lustrous and excellent for sewing. It can be used for wearable art within reason.

The medium is applied at 100% strength and must be heat set after it is dry for proper bonding. The manufacturer suggests two minutes at 250°F. Use a cloth or tissue paper between the iron and fusion when heat setting.

If too little medium is used, or the fibres are not wetted through properly, the surface may be fuzzy or the layers may bubble and/or separate.
