This superior, ready-to-use resist easily washes out with warm water (even after steaming or setting), revealing the white or colored silk beneath. Removable Water-based Resist keeps the silk completely soft to the touch and allows artists to create layered designs, as in batik. It holds a crisp line without spreading and does not shrink or pucker when dry. Removable Water-based Resist may be tinted with any water-based dye for colored lines. It is screenable, odorless, alcohol-free and non-toxic.
