SolarFast dyes only develop color and become permanent upon exposure to sunlight (UV). This unique property means SolarFast may be used to create remarkably detailed photographs, photograms and shadow-prints on paper or fabric by harnessing the power of the sun! Anything you place on the painted surface to block the light will create a printed impression in a matter of minutes, whether a solid object (toys, tools, plants, lace, etc.), a photographic negative (an image digitally printed onto a transparency)* or shadow (from folds in the fabric or a 3D object). SolarFast dyes are also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more—no heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary. The dye leaves fabric completely soft to the touch. On paper, it has zero relief and will not affect the texture of the surface whatsoever, making it a powerful tool for mixed-media arts.

How is it used?

  • Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge, brayer or squeegee. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the color magically appear!

  • Place objects on the coated surface prior to exposing to block development and create photograms. Any object that casts a shadow will create an image.

  • Use a film negative to create permanent photographs on paper or fabric. Prints are washable and lightfast.

Fast Wash

This 4 ounce bottle of SolarFast Wash by Jacquard is used to remove the undeveloped SolarFast dye from your paper or fabric. Bring your prints inside away from the light source before removing the negative. If machine washing textiles use with 2 to 3 capfuls of the SolarFast Wash in the hottest possible cycle. For hand washing paper or fabric, submerge in the hottest tap water possible and add 1 to 2 capfuls of SolarFast Wash, keeping the water flowing for at least ten minutes. Made in the USA.
