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!
WHEN TO USE IT: • Using the SolarFast Step Wedge is completely optional. In fact, most printers will never need to use it—the exposure times suggested on the SolarFast labels will almost always produce great prints on sunny days. • Use the SolarFast Step Wedge only if you are printing in unusual conditions, such as if you are printing with artificial light, or if it is an unusually cloudy day.
