SolarFast Dyes




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!

Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge or brayer. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the colour 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. Machine washing is recommended for textiles. Colour development is not complete until after washing.
SolarFast thins and cleans up with water. For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener. SolarFast works with all artist papers, wood and natural fibres, including: cotton, linen, canvas,silk and hemp. Shake well before use.
