Resist is used to draw the outline of an image on silk. Used with liquid dyes, the Gutta stops the flow of dye at the resist lines. Jacquard’s traditional Gutta Resist is made from natural Gutta-percha (tree sap), which produces the finest resist available.
Gutta resist air dries and is intended to remain permanently on the fabric. Gutta is NOT water-based and can only be thinned and cleaned up with the Gutta Resist Solvent.
Any resist should be completely dry before applying dye. Gutta is removed from fabric by dry-cleaning. Coloured gutta's are intended to remain on the fabric and should not be dry-cleaned.
Note: When used with heavier silks, Gutta Resist may have to be thinned (with Gutta Resist Solvent) so it completely penetrates the fabric.
Note: Please allow a little longer for delivery on this product as stock needs to be ordered in.
