CMC is a cellulose based thickener for water-based paints and non-reactive dyes. It can also be used as an adhesive; as a base for marbling; for papier-mache; as a binder & size in paper-making and as a simple converter making acrylics into screen-print colour for paper. In powder form, make up like custard powder to desired consistency.
Not to be used as a thickener for Procion fibre-reactive dyes as the dye will bond itself to the thickener instead of the fabric.
2tbsps (roughly 30gms) will make around 500ml of reasonably thick paste. Adjust to suit.
This version of CMC is pure with no added chemicals.
