This water-based anti-spread allows you to paint with H Dupont Classique dyes as you would paint a canvas using watercolour technique.
Treat your silk before painting by applying a thin, even coat of anti-spread to the surface to prevent the dye spreading. The silk becomes stiff and paper-like so you can paint freely without needing gutta. The anti-spread can also be used on small sections of the silk.
Available in 100 ml bottles.
How to use H Dupont water-based anti-spread
- Apply the anti-spread with a large brush or sponge on the entire surface to be painted.
- Before painting, allow to dry well. To speed up the drying process, use a hairdryer.
- The anti-spread does not change the colour of you silk.
- Paint your design
- Fix your silk dyes by steaming then wash out the anti-spread with warm water. Silk will regain its soft handle after washing.
This product should not be applied to an already painted silk! It is only used on a background without colour.
