This is a scarf that I tested a new product, to me, a resist from NewZealand. The gold gutta is water base and needs to be steamed or heat set with a iron before painting with dyes. It worked very well. I also tried out the red label black dye 50/50 and it steamed very well and didn't run. I am getting ready for a silk painting conference this July with the international SPIN. They have some wonderful teachers. I am also on facebook with 829 internationally people sharing. I have learned a lot.
