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 steam-able and formulated for acid-based pH dyes (‘French-type’ dyes, or other
acid-recipe pH dyes). If the resist is subjected to fixatives that are alkaline in pH, or the prolonged high
heat steam-setting of alkaline-recipe/alkaline pH dyes, it changes the acid pH composition of the resist
and can make it stick to the silk and hard to wash out. The best thing you can do at this point is rinse in
a bath of white vinegar (so it returns the Silkpaint resist to its original acid pH) and GENTLY brush with
a SOFT toothbrush over the lines. Water-based resist washes out easily if you use silk paints rather
than silk dyes because the paints only require ironing to heat-set.
