With the Lumi Photo Printing Kit, you can print images on fabric using the power of sunlight. The kit uses Inkodye – Lumi’s own photo-sensitive dye that develops its color once exposed to sunlight or other UV lights. It’s an easy way to experiment with dying and textile printing without the need for a special ink curing lamp.
With the Lumi Sunfold Printing Kit, you can print patterns onto fabric using the power of sunlight. The kit uses Inkodye – Lumi’s own photo-sensitive dye that develops its color once exposed to sunlight or other UV lights. It’s an easy way to experiment with dying and textile printing without the need for a special ink curing lamp.
This kit is a great alternative to tie-dying and has complete instructions on how to print a pattern directly onto a t-shirt or any type of textile. This kit is great for groups of people – making it the ideal day-time party activity for the fashionable and creative. It makes at least sixteen prints but you can also dilute Inkodye with up to 10 parts water to extend its power and create fun shades. While the kit comes with instructions, there’s also a step-by-step guide on the Lumi site.
With the Lumi Shadow Printing Kit, you can learn the basics of Lumi’s own Inkodye, a sunlight-activated dye. This kit teaches you how to print unique patterns with ordinary everyday objects. It’s an easy and affordable way to begin printing with Inkodye and is a great first step to printing a custom canvas pouch, without the need for a special ink curing lamp.
