Tired of cleaning your silk screen, trying to mix the emulsion and the sensitizer just right, or working hard on the emulsion coat just to find it didn't adhere in all the detailed spots of the design?
Lumi's new kit is a great alternative to time consuming screen printing. When you just want to get the job done, and to have a little fun along the way, look to Lumi. They've made these new kits an all-in-one trip into the world of photo printing with Inkodye.
Inkodyes are water-based and work on cotton, linen, silk, rayon, canvas, and other natural, absorbent materials. The finished product is permanent, machine washable, and fade resistant.
Using Lumi's app you can create a negative using your own image or choose from a selection of stock images to get you started. Photoshop, and other image editing software, can also be used to create a digital negative. After you have your design ready to go just print onto the Inkofilm transparent inkjet film using an inkjet printer, paint on some color and let the sun do the rest.
Kit makes approximately four 12"x12" prints.
