PRODUCT UPDATE: deColourant … and NEW PRODUCT: deColourant Mist
NEW Name - deColourant (formerly “Discharge Paste”)
Our customers didn't like the name...so we changed it!
At Jacquard, we take your feedback seriously. Many of our customers have commented that, while they love the product, the name "Discharge Paste" is unpleasant. So, we acquired the name deColourant, which is more descriptive: deColourant removes color! We think the new name has a nice ring to it.
deColourant is a ready-to-use printing paste for removing areas of color from dyed natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk and wool. Unlike bleach, deColourant removes color without jeopardizing the integrity of the fiber.
NOW AVAILABLE: deColourant Mist
We also offer this product in a sprayable formula called deColourant Mist! Create designs by misting through a stencil or around a found object.

Removable Resist may be tinted with any water-based dye for colored lines and is screenable, odorless, alcohol-free and non-toxic.

PRODUCT UPDATE: Versatex Fixer - New Formula!
Now Versatex Fixer is greatly improved and fixes better than ever!* This additive for Versatex Screen Inks increases washfastness and eliminates the need for heat setting.
