Water Based Resist seems runny
  • I just purchased the Jacquard Water Based Resist and I'm using it on 16 mm silk crepe de chine and it seems very runny to me. I shook the resist and then stirred it well before pouring it into my squeeze bottle. I'm using the smallest tip I have (0.5) and it's still creating a line that's about 1/8" thick - even when I move quickly over the surface of the silk. Is there some way to make the Resist thicker so it won't spread? I don't want thick resist lines in my work.
  • Hi,
    Please call Jacquard customer service 1800 442 0455 if you are in the USA. Or return it to the store where you purchaced it. The resist should not be that thin you possibly have a defective bottle.

  • I tried the water based resist for the first time as well and found it quite runny too-went backto gutta. Any suggestions?
  • Hi,

    It shouldn't be that thin. I personally find the black and the clear to be the correct consistancy. Please call customer service as you may have a defective bottle.
