Resist paste for Bengala dye

Resist paste for Bengala dye

from 22.00

This product is ideal for experimenting with color resist techniques with Bengala Mud Dyes, Aijozome Indigo, and Susuzome. After drawing or stenciling your design with this paste, you can dye your fabric in a Bengala dye bath or paint with Bengala dyes directly on your fabric.

How to use: It is recommended to prefix your fabric first. Apply the resist paste to dry fabric with a squeeze bottle with a fine tip. You can also make a cone of moisture-proof paper, fill halfway with resist paste, twist the opening closed, and clip a tiny hole at the point of the cone, like a pastry bag, to draw designs on your fabric. You can also use a stencil sheet.

You can start painting with dye or immerse in a dye bath before the resist paste is fully dry, just so long as it has penetrated through the fabric. The resist paste may start to dissolve in the dye bath, but your design will be unaffected so long as the paste has penetrated the fabric. Be cautious when dyeing as the resist paste may adhere to other areas of your fabric if it is not fully dry, We recommend to use a wide and shallow container for the dye bath rather than a deep bucket so you can avoid folding the fabric on itself, and potentially transferring resist paste.

After dyeing, allow the fabric to dry completely before rinsing to remove any remaining resist paste.

Ingredients: Bentonite, Sodium sesquicarbonate, Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)
