Solvent based gutta made locally and without the added cost of shipping from France so we can sell it at a very attractive price and have a better selection of sizes. Some say it is not as consistent as the French Guttas, but the great price makes up for it, and it is fresher (shelf life ~6 months). Others like it just fine. Thin it carefully (if necessary) and clean up with Gutta Solvent. Work in a well ventilated area. Store in a cool dark place.
Gutta is an organic liquid latex and is not easy to remove from fabric. The best way is dry cleaning, but it might not remove it completely on the first cleaning. Also, a lot of dry cleaners now use more environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals which may not work as well. You can also try this: soaking the piece in naphtha, gutta solvent, gasoline or mineral spirits. Mineral spirits doesn’t evaporate as fast and leaves a greasy residue on the fabric. You can rub the Gutta areas to assist in the removal, but be sure to wear gloves. Wash the fabric well afterwards with Synthrapol.
**Because this is flammable, we can only ship them by UPS SurePost, UPS Ground and FedEx Surface, only to the continental U.S. See our Water Based Resists for additional options.
