    ORDER NOW!

    SolarFast dyes are used to create photograms, continuous tone photographs, shadow prints, and ombrès on fabric and paper. SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more!

    Permanent on all artist papers and natural fabrics, including cotton, linen, canvas, silk, hemp,  and wool. Color is washable and lightfast and leaves fabric completely soft.

    Instructions:
    Shake well before use. Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge or brayer. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the color magically appear! Place objects on coated substrate to block development during exposure. Any object that casts a shadow will create a pattern. Use a film negative to create permanent photographs on paper or fabric. After exposure, wash out undeveloped dye with SolarFast Wash and hot water, agitating vigorously. Machine washing is recommended for textiles. Color development is not complete until after washing.

    SolarFast thins and cleans up with water.
    For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener.

  3. SolarFast dyes develop their color and become permanent upon exposure to sunlight (UV). This unique property means SolarFast may be used to easily create photograms, continuous tone photographs and sun prints on paper and natural fabrics, in any color! It also means that if you screen print with SolarFast, you can superimpose photographic images onto the screen print.This is a highly unique and impressive effect. The best part: no heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary, and the dye leaves fabric completely soft to the touch. Learn more here: jacquardproducts.com/solarfast.html

  4. The Jacquard Film Marker (jacquardproducts.com/film-marker.html) is a high density, opaque and permanent marker for film media, making it perfect for creating hand-drawn film negatives on SolarFast Film (jacquardproducts.com/solarfast-film.html) for use with SolarFast Dyes (jacquardproducts.com/solarfast.html).

    It is also great for creating hand-drawn film positives for burning stencils for screen printing.

SolarFast dyes are colorless out of the bottle, but develop into beautifully vibrant and permanent hues when applied and exposed to sunlight. To create a print, simply brush SolarFast onto fabric or paper, place objects, drawings or photos on top, expose to sunlight and watch the color magically appear! Remove the undeveloped dye using SolarFast Wash and you're done--no heat setting or chemical fixing necessary. This simple process allows you to create photographs, photograms and shadow prints on paper or fabric in minutes, in practically any color. On fabric, prints are completely soft to the touch, permanent and washable.
