Applications

Lightening Materials for Setasilk

Mix the medium with the colour,  lightening Setasilk to create lighter shades without weakening or thinning the product.

Gutta water

The water based gutta, has a thick consistency  given for the completion of the crimp.  Pearl colours,  work directly with the tube or gutta pipette cannula . They soak into the fibers of the fabric perfectly, thereby blocking the Setasilk colours  that are applied afterwards. Once heated by an iron, the gutta resists washing except for the colourless gutta , which is specially formulated to be removed in the water.

Gutta Solvent

The gutta solvents are used to make the seams in silk painting. Black, gold, silver or clear, they are thick and "dam" the colours on the silk then apply. It is possible to work with the gutta pipette or a brush. They require no special fixing: 30 minutes of air-drying  is sufficient.

Solvent used to thin the gutta-phase solvent. Also used to clean brushes used in the application of gutta solvent.

Always conduct tests before starting any creation.
