Silk crushMonday, October 25, 2010
If I say I could achive a similar result using hair perm fluid, a microwave oven, a radiator and a baking oven, would you believe me? While I can't personally vouch for this method, according to this link it will work (I especially love the warning "While working with the microwave and baking oven, the windows should be OPENED WIDE! You will need to keep the air circulating in this room to get fresh air!" )
I really want to permanently pleat some black silk for a project I will soon blog about. But this method sounds scary, plus I'm not sure my boyfriend will allow me to use his precious microwave for this project. I guess I could simply skip the step of telling him, that is always a nifty strategy, but since I think he still reads this blog from time to time (and I am so daft that I write about this beforehand, could we call this blogger stupidity?) I guess this project is doomed.
