We rented the tour set of Anything Goes and our smokestacks are wrinkled BAD…we do not have the capacity to stretch it sideways, and I was under the assumption that when back painted, steaming the back won’t help….am I right or wrong? Is there some sort of solution that could help????
I have not experienced it first hand (wasn’t going to risk it), but have been told (and also read) that it absorbs and holds moisture for extended periods of time – this can cause fuzzy/blurry edges and/or pull dye from one area to another if it is folded for storage or travel
Not hydrated potassium aluminium sulfate… Alum root.
I must say I’ve never encountered a dye drop which was wrinkled or baggy. If it were I’d look to a bad square on the drop and opt for stretchers on the sides and a good pipe/batten on the bottom. In any case it’s another reason to make sure you’ve done a good starch job on the drop prior to dye.
