Resists are used in Serti style silk painting to create barriers that Silk Colors or Dye-Na-Flow cannot cross. "Serti" means to encircle or enclose, and the technique allows silk painters to achieve stained-glass window effects.
- Separation is normal. Stir well before using.
- Apply the resist using a brush, screen, stamp or applicator.
- Be sure the resist penetrates all the way through the fabric. For heavier fabrics, thinning with a small amount of water may improve penetration.
- When using a fine-line applicator,, draw design on fabric using smooth strokes. Make sure all lines are connected to prevent color from bleeding through gaps in the resist line.
- Apply Dye-Na-Flow or Silk Colors and set according to manufacturer's instructions. The resist may then be removed by washing with mild soap and warm water,thus revealing the white or original color beneath, much like batik.
- Removable Water based-Resist may be tinted with any water-based dye for colored lines. With proper fixation, color in resist will remain in fabric after washing.
