Blueprinting and Sunprinting
Blueprinting/Cyanotype/Sunprinting - Jacquard SolarFast Starter Kit
SolarFast dyes develop their colour 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 many colours. SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more, with no heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary. The dye leaves fabric completely soft. On paper, SolarFast has zero relief and will not affect the texture of the printed surface whatsoever, and thins and cleans up with water.
Whether making prints from drawings, photographs or objects, on paper, fabric, canvas, or clothing, the SolarFast Starter Kit offers a great introduction to sun-powered printmaking.
For adults or children ages 8+. The kit prints up to 8 shirts/several dozen paper prints. The SolarFast™ Starter Kit comes with everything you need to get started:
