Gutta/fabric paint dual use acrylic solution with metallic pigments.
This metallic gutta allows you to create outlines to contain dye within the enclosed areas. Colours will not get mixed with each other and your design will remain clear and precise. These water-based guttas are ready for use.
Available in 100 ml bottles.
How to use the H Dupont water-based gutta
On a stretched and clean silk (not too stretched!) apply the gutta with a screw nib or a stycone applicator bottle. The lines of a water-based gutta tend to widen slightly on the silk. Use a 06 to 08 nib.
Cut the spout of the applicator bottler to the desired width. Fill the bottle with gutta and apply carefully. Allow to dry (use a hairdryer to speed up drying) Be careful not to apply the dye too close to the gutta line to avoid the risk of dye bleeding through the outlines.
To heat fix the gutta, iron the silk on the wrong side before steam-fixing the silk dye.
It is not possible to remove the gutta with water.
