Pebeo Water-based Gutta
Like a spider spinning its web, to paint on silk you have to create barriers to set aside certain areas before applying colour. Pebeo Gutta is a water-based resist that helps you achieve fantastic results.
With guttas, wax as well as tjanting tools you can easily master this skill. Pebeo provides a varied range of auxiliaries and accessories for painting on silk. These enable you to learn all the techniques of serti painting as well as batik.
Pebeo Water-based Gutta, pearl and opaque, is used for the Serti (closing) technique in silk painting. Water-based Guttas have a thick consistency and are ideal for creating resists. The pearlescent or glossy colours are applied directly from the tube’s handy applicator nozzle. They readily penetrate through the fibers of the fabric, creating a barrier to Setasilk colours which are applied afterwards. Once they are set with an iron, these Guttas are wash-resistant (when following recommendations).
Use the Pebeo Colorless Gutta for creating colorless resists on fabric. Penetrates through the fibers of the fabric when applied, creating a barrier to the fabric paints which are applied afterwards. The colorless water-based Gutta is specially formulated to wash out in water. You can apply this product with tip of the Pébéo Gutta applicator tube.
