H. Dupont's Waterbased Anti-Fusant (Anti Spread) is like a magical goop that you apply to your silk prior to painting with your steam fixed dyes or iron fixed silk paints. Anti-Fusant closes the pores of the silk and allows you to paint it like a canvas. Your paint or dye will stay where they are put! If you prefer to work free-hand but need to control the spread of the dye or paint this is the product for you! Your brushed details will remain crisp, allowing you to paint distinct images and shapes without the use of a gutta or traditional resist! If you use fine point fabric markers on your silk to sign your name (or to create Zentangle-type designs) you can draw crisp, clean lines without that "feathering" created by the wicking of the ink, paint or dye. This product will not change your colors.

This is a clear, creamy liquid that acts as a coating agent. When you do not wish to use a resist to define areas of dye, but rather paint directly on the silk, apply a thin coat of the Antifusant to the fabric with a foam brush, our paint-roller, or applicator like #SAH. As it dries, it will not stiffen the fabric appreciably but it will dry to a matte finish and will control the flow of the dyes. Once dry, you may paint directly on the fabric, and very little bleeding will occur. The Antifusant may be used over the entire fabric or small sections. After setting the dye, rinse the fabric in lukewarm water to remove the antifusant. The stiffness will disappear and the fabric will regain its original texture and appearance.

This stuff is awesome. This is the best (commercial) no-flow primer I have ever used. It's very straightforward - apply it to your stretched silk let it dry then paint - however just as with any product the user needs to test it - one set of instructions will not cover every scenario. You will need to adjust the viscosity depending on what type of silk you are working on and the desired effect. I recommend testing it full strength then 1:1 with water then 2:1. I find that I will need slightly different viscosities depending on my silk weight (which varies from 5mm to about 30mm). As with every ancillary or tool you need to test test test.
