Product Description
The Silkpaint! company has specialized in this resist for years, and it shows. It has a lot of uses and advantages:
  • Paint while resist is still wet!
  • Add dyes to make colored resists.
  • Use as a stop-flow when thinned with water.
  • Steamable, or can be used with fixatives (painted on).
  • Remove with cool water!
  • No fumes, non-toxic!

For a water based resist, this one holds the lines pretty well. We used to get reports of it being more difficult to remove when steamed, but not lately as they have improved it even more. This one is nice because you can get it in quarts too.

Note: This resist is steamable, but even so, if the resist is subjected to the prolonged high heat of steam-setting it changes the composition of the resist and can make it really stick to the silk and hard to wash out. The best thing you can do at this point is GENTLY scrub with a SOFT toothbrush over the lines during the washing. It doesn't always work. If you use silk dyes and don't want to deal with resist being hard to wash out you can use solvent-based gutta and dry clean it out, or use colored water-based resists that you leave on the fabric. Water-based resist does wash out easily if you use a silk paint rather than a silk dye because the paints only require ironing to heat-set.

DO NOT uses Silkpaint resist if you are steaming your silk! I got this resist mixed up with my Sennelier Aqua Gutta (love it) resist. After steaming Silkpaint resist would NOT come out of the pieces! I tried everything: soaking scrubbing with a soft brush even took the pieces to the dry cleaners. They tried several ways to get it out and it wouldn't come out. I now have big fat labels on my resist bottles WARNING me NOT to steam Silkpaint resist!

I work with Ugandan women who use the Resist to make designs on silk scarves they are painting. The Resist is extremely easy to use. There is no product waste and no mess to clean up. It washes out of the fabric quite easily in the end so the fabric feels smooth and silky once again.

Just bought this to compare to 2 other resistsgutta I bought at the same time. So far this brand is holding the line very well. I use a metal tip #5 and mix in color dyes to get the color I want and I am very pleased with the results. Not as runny as the Jacquard American Gutta Black (black is more like grey)and similar to the "old" Jacquard Clear Water Based Resist. The 4 oz. bottle comes with the easy to pour tip.

I really want to like this resist but it is way too difficult to remove after steaming.

This didn't work for me at least not for my application. I was looking for a resist to use on cotton with sprayed fabric paint. This resist turned out spotty and uneven. . . . might be terrific with silk though.

If you steam set the resist does not wash out - no matter how much scrubbing scraping and rewashing you do. Very disappointing!

Works well but can be a little tricky figuring out how thoroughly the resist is covering the area. I still get some color bleed through so the blocked area isn't cleanly white. However it washes out easily and that is nice.

I forgot that this should not be used with steam setting dyes. I wish they would state that on the label. I mostly used it for pictures that can be hung on the wall but the scarves now have a few little sticky places so not sure if they can be used. I will stick with Sennelier Aqua Resist now.

If you are planning to use much resist go for the bigger size as the smaller one can be used quickly. I've become addicted to this product. It's very versatile and can take colorhue dyes to make a coloured resist.

This an excellent resist to use with students. I use it on silk scarves (Machine Hemmed 8mm Habotai Scarves) as sort of a "batik" project with the Dharma Pigment Dye. We heat-set the dye for a few minutes in a clothes dryer and the resist washes out fairly easily by rinsing in water.

I'm STILL trying to get this stuff four after repeated washings of the pieces where I used it. And it didn't even do that good a job as a resist! I do not do not recommend it!
