- Do I have to buy professional silk when I can simply starch silk I buy locally with PVA solution?
The answer is YES and NO.
Let me explain.
Starching silk with PVA solution is a good option, better than starching silk with gelatin.
Silk starched with gelatin become like paper : feels and even sounds like a piece of paper
and when humidity is high it loses it's shape.
Starching with the PVA solution - becomes now more popular.
Silk starched with PVA solution has a wonderful feel. Fantastically blends dyes, has excellent shape memory.
Below you will find a short video on how to starch silk with PVA solution.
However, I suggest you first to buy professionally starched silk to compare the quality and to see how professional silk look and feel like - that you can bring your job of starching silk with PVA solution to perfection.
