Dyes & Surface Design: SolarFast

SolarFast sunlight-developed dyes are used to create photograms, continuous tone photographs and sun prints on paper and natural fabrics. SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more. No heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary.

Newly improved: odorless, no more ammonia, kid-friendly.
More consistent exposure times, brighter and cleaner colors, a more stable dye.

14 Colors available, plus Wash, Thickener (for screen-printing) and packs of InkJet Film for making negatives.

HOW IS IT USED?
Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge or brayer. Do this in as little light as possible, even artificial. A "safe" light (red bulb) works well. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the color appear.
Place objects on the painted surface before exposing, to block the light, and prevent the development of color, creating the design. Any object that casts a shadow will create an image. Use a film negative to create permanent photographs on paper or fabric.
Prints are washable, lightfast and archival. The dye leaves fabric completely soft. On paper, SolarFast has zero relief and will not affect the texture of the printed surface whatsoever.

SolarFast thins and cleans up with water.
For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener.
Fabric/Fiber/Surfaces: all artist papers, wood and natural fibers, including: cotton, linen, canvas, silk and hemp
