Sun Printing

One of the most popular uses for Setacolor Transparent. This is a particularly simple process performed in the Paciic Islands to decorate pareos. Setacolor Transparent reacts to the sun!

Prepare the masks, then the colour by mixing one volume of paint with 2 volumes of water

All types of masks can be used: feathers, wire netting, pre-cut cardboard, flowers and leaves. The heliographic (sun printing) and salt techniques can be combined. .

Moisten the fabric and stretch it on a frame or lay it on the ground in the sunshine. Apply the paint to the fabric with a sponge or spray bottle. You can also apply the fabric by dipping it in a paint bath and then wring it out (very messy). Immediatly place the masks ontop of the fabric and allow to dry in the sun. .

If there is no sun, good results will be obtained by using an ultra-violet or infrared lamp.

Examples - note how the object/mask image is bleached or lighten on the fabrics after being exposed to the sun.

Gutta, also known as Resist, is used to control the flow of dyes in silk painting. One usually draws the outline of the image with gutta using a brush, an applicator bottle or through screen printing. When applying the gutta, take care that the gutta penetrates the fabric completely. If it doesn't the dyes will flow past the gutta lines. After applying the gutta, you paint within the lines and allow the dyes to bleed upto the gutta. The dyes will stop flowing upon hitting the line.

WATER BASED GUTTAS (also see G&S Waterbased Resist)

The line of water base guttas offers pearl and brilliant colours (clear + 11 colours). Made of pigments and heat fixable resins, the colours soak through the fibre of the fabric without spreading. Freshly applied or dried, the guttas are easy to work with. Once fixed by ironing, or steamed, the water based guttas are permanent.


  • easy to apply from the tube (no need to purchase an extra applicator)
  • wide range of colours that can be fixed as opposed to solvent colours
  • leaves very little residue compared to solvent
  • although smaller packaging it allows you to purchase a wider range of colours and choice with same amount of money
  • cheaper to use if you only need clear gutta


  • is more expensive to use if you require a large amount of any of the colours.
  • black is not as black as solvent guttas
  • clear gutta is quite weak in holding back dye on "wet-on-wet" techniques
