The art of screen printing and batik

Like a spider spinning its web, to paint on silk you have to create serti barriers and set aside certain areas before applying your colours.
With guttas, wax and tjantings you can easily master this skill, Pebeo provides a varied range of auxiliaries and accessories for painting on silk that enables you to learn all the techniques of serti painting and batik.

Applications

Setasilk lightener

Mix the lightener with the Setasilk colours to create lighter tones without compromising the washing properties.

Water-based gutta

Water-based guttas with thick consistency are recommended for carrying out sertis (enclosure or fence technique). In pearlescent or gloss colours, applied directly with the tube nozzle. They easily pass through the fibres of the fabric, thus hedging any Setasilk colours subsequently applied. Once fixed using an iron, these guttas are resistant to washing (following recommendations).

Water-based colourless gutta:

For the colourless serti (enclosure or fence) technique for painting on fabric. When applied, they easily pass through the fibres of the fabric, thus hedging any Setasilk colours subsequently applied. Water-based colourless gutta is a colourless product especially formulated to be eliminated with water.

It can be applied with a brush, with Pébéo gutta minerva tips or with Pébéo gutta applicators.
