Gutta Resist - 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 Gutta Resist is made from natural Gutta Percha which produces the finest resist available. Any resist should be completely dry before applying dye. Gutta is removed from fabric by dry-cleaning. Colored guttas are intended to remain on the fabric and should not be dry-cleaned.
When used with heavier silks, Gutta Resist may have to be thinned so it completely penetrates the fabric. Jacquard Gutta Solvent (4 oz.) is for use only with Jacquard Gutta Resists, not water-based resists. Gutta Solvent can be used to clean up application bottle and tools, but it not designed to be used to remove the Gutta Resist from fabric.
Water Based Resist - Jacquard has developed a superior water-based resist that washes out easily with warm water, even after steaming. It holds a crisp line without spreading and does not shrink or pucker when dry.
This water-based resist can be colored with any water-based dye and is screenable, odorless, alcohol-free and non-toxic.
