We use Organic Print Paste Thickener (replaces Gum Tragacanth) as a thickener to paint or print with natural dyes on fabric. In addition, it is an organically certified water-soluble carbohydrate gum mixture. Similarly, it performs very well in thickening dyes and pigments for printing and painting. It will dissolve readily in cold or hot water. After that, it forms a smooth translucent paste to mix with powders or liquids.
*Gum Tragacanth is currently in limited availability. Most of the world’s supply comes from Iran which is now a restricted trading partner to the US.
- 250 grams of Organic Print Paste Thickener will make approximately 8 liters (two gallons) of thickened paste for painting or printing with natural dyes.
