Everything one person needs (except the scarves) to try out silk painting with Jacquard Silk Dyes.

Kit Contains:

  • Four 60 ml. bottles of Jacquard Silk Dyes (Magenta, Cyan, Yellow, and Black)
  • One 200 ml. bottle of DyeSet
  • One 60 ml. bottle of Colorless Solvent-Based Gutta -or- Water-Based Resist
  • One Resist Applicator Bottle and .7mm Metal Tip
  • One Chinese Sumi Brush #1
  • One Instruction Sheet that includes a Color Mixing Guide

**there is a California Cancer warning label somewhere in the package because the resist applicator tips are brass with nickel plating, so please don't eat them or let your kids or pets eat them. There is no risk from handling them in the way they are intended, and you will probably handle them less than your pennies. Copper is on the California Carcinogen list too.

**Because the Gutta version is flammable, we can only ship it by UPS SurePost, UPS Ground and FedEx Surface, only to the continental U.S.

This is an excellent starter kit for learning how to silk paint with real dyes instead of paints (like Dye-na-flow.) This is the set that I started with 6 years ago and I have stayed with Jacquard green label dyes for traditional silk painting. The instructions in this set are well written the color mixing guide lends confidence to those who are new to mixing colors from primaries and the amount of dye is enough to allow for some trial and error as you learn. Highly recommended.

I am a beginner at Silk painting and just finished my first project. It turned out great and the colors were just lovely. I used the starter set and I think it is adequate for a beginner. You can create a lot of different colors by mixing the colors.

The resist spreads abd saturates the scarves quickly so lots of practice to get a technique for working with it. The glue holding the brush head into the handle dissolved during the first scarf and had to be thrown away. Luckily we had another. Suggest the color mixing chart have sample color blocks and be a waterproof paper to help beginners and youth use it without damage from drips.

I bought the kit with water based gutta - and also purchased some black gutta (not water based) to try. Water based is my preference. If you are interested in trying your hand at it - get this kit. It's a good way to ease into it and understand how to play with the dyes. I bought 8mm silk habotai which is all I use now. It's the right weight for painting. I am not crazy about the Magenta dye because it's really bright in a neon 80's kind of way BUT - it can make some really stunning shades of blush pink and sweet rose when mixed with yellow. If you want a red- get red dye. I tried to mix black with magenta hoping to tone it down a little but it did not work as well. Overall - it's a great price for all the tools I recommend it.

This kit openend the door to silk dyeing for me in a big bold amazing way. The instructions and color mixing chart wereare very helpful. I didn't give five stars because I am stuck with a bottle of DyeSet that I don't want.
