The article presents a reprint of the article "Dye Painting on Silk," by Ann Johnston, which appeared in the 1992 issue of "Surface Design Journal." It states that fiber reactive dyes can be applied directly on either silk, cotton, rayon or linen in a method that requires neither steam nor heat treatment. Moreover, it describes the recipe for silk using acetic acid in the print mix such as preparing the fabric, making the print mix, making the dye stock and mixing the Dye Stock and print mix.
