I love your questions. They make me think. I sometimes take a couple of cups of cheap men’s shaving cream and add some Dupont (liquid) dye to it and use it to dye. I have a long/wide piece of a swimming pool solar cover that is textured (any textured thing will do) . I lay it on a table. Mix some dye with the shaving cream and spread it on the textured piece on the table. Several colors if you like. Don’t put it on too thick, just enough to barely cover it. Carefully lay the silk on top and maybe pat it a little until the color and design show. Let sit for at least 5 minutes or until you like the design. Get someone to take one end of the silk and you take the other and carefully lift it up and hand it to dry. (I fasten mine to the edge of the table) It dries quickly and then I steam for a while. On this piece the back and sleeves are the shaving cream technique, the front is the Parfait technique. Entirely different. will explain another time.

Marcia Ferris Oh yes, forgot to add. The wonderful smell of the shaving cream does not entirely wash out.
