SolarFast by Jacquard (4oz)




Sunlight-developed dye for paper and natural fabrics
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! Watch Video

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 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, agitating vigorously. Machine washing is recommended for textiles. Colour development is not complete until after washing.

Create your own negatives using an inkjet printer and Jacquard SolarFast Film
