This is a super strong level of stiffener. It contains 140% active stiffening ingredients of the Durtex stiffener. It is only for using on smaller surfaces of sinamay or textiles and provides extra reinforcement on natural fibers. This stiffener was specially developed for Bridget Bailey’s techniques and courses.
