Print fabric with light!
Lumi UV-Activated Fabric Printing Kits let you make permanent prints on clothes and other textiles with what comes in the box and a little bit of sunshine. They're the simplest way to create custom-printed designs at home, without the need for specialized screen printing equipment.
The process is simple and fun. Just apply Lumi Inkodye to any natural fabric in a dim environment. Place objects or a contact negative (printed transparency) on top of your fabric, expose it to the sun (or other UV light source), and watch your prints appear before your eyes like magic.
The process works on cotton, linen, silk, rayon, canvas, and any other natural and absorbent fiber. After washing with Lumi Inkowash, your prints are permanent and can withstand repeated machine washings without fading.
Anything that casts a strong shadow can make a beautiful Lumi Inkodye print. From buttons, ribbons, and feathers to stencils, custom cutouts, and 3-D objects, the possibilities are unlimited.
You can also use the Lumi iPhone app to turn your digital photos into textile designs. Shoot black-and-white pictures, preview them in any Inkodye color, and create your own custom contact negatives. Print them on Lumi Inkofilm (sold separately) using your home inkjet printer, or use the app to order negatives right to your doorstep.
Inkodye colors can be mixed together and diluted with water. You can even print on top of other bright colors to create a wider range of effects. Try purchasing several kits and see what you can invent!
Everything you need to get started is included in the kits, which contain enough material to make approximately four 12" × 12" (30 cm × 30 cm) prints:
