Silk, Henna and line bleeding

Awhile back someone asked about keeping the lines of henna from bleeding on silk. I suggested a couple of products from Dharma Trading that keep acid dyes from spreading on the silk and the person wondered if they inhibited the henna from staining. I said I would do some experiements. Sorry it took so long, we had family drama ocurr. Here are some pictures

 The line did not bleed and the dye took normally. The stain is not real dark but the paste was old. The red stuff is red dye- I use this hoop as a wipe off thingy while painting.

Hope this helps
