Product Description

Water-soluble, non-toxic resist made in France where they really know the silk painting business. Rinsing the fabric in warm water removes resist lines. This one is steamable, so can be used with professional silk dyes, and has excellent resist properties for a water based product.

Note: This resist is steamable and works better with steaming than other water-based resists, but even so, once 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 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 not washing out you can use solvent-based gutta and then 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 paint only requires ironing to heat-set.

Made in: FRANCE (FR)

I really enjoyed using this product. It has a great viscosity so it's easy to use and it's very flexible so you can do some nice detail work. The bottle is a great size for most projects I used mine for several medium sized projects with no problems. I look forward to many more happy experiences with this water resist. Washing it out does take a little bit of rubbing but it comes out great!

Works well even when mixing with a color The first time I used it I should have added a little water to make it flow better.

This still works great after sitting in the garage for 10 years. Yeah! When I started silk painting (early 90's) Dharma's main silk expert (Paulette) told me that Senelier aqua gutta is best. It has never been less than perfect for me. I love coloring it with dye to get softer serti lines. Today (2011) their silk expert (Ivy) told me that the cheaper Jacquard is as good. But the customer reviews seem to show that Sennelier is still the best. Don't mess with success -- pay a little more to be safe.

This aqua gutta is far superior to the Jacquard water based gutta which I was using before.

I'd give this extra stars if I could. This is a great product and I got it just as I was about to give up on water-based gutta.

At last! I have been hopping from one brand to the next to try to find one that actually stopped the paint from flowing. I am not new to this--I have been a silk painter for 25 years. My old brand Silkpaint was reformulated since I last bought it and with all of the reviews about how the new formula is hard to wash out I decided that it was time to try a new product. I wish I'd tried this one first--nice crisp gutta lines that wash out easily. I use paint not dye and iron to heatset.

I like it better than the other resists because it leaves a more permeated line so you can see what you're doing! I have had to crane my neck and adjust the light in order to see my lines with others. Dries quickly very smooth texture. I did not get the blobs others commented about.
