Jacquard SolarFast Starter Kit

Harness the power of the sun to print art prints and fabric art! The SolarFast Starter Kit offers a great introduction to printmaking with the sun, at a great value.

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 fibers including cotton, linen, canvas, silk, hemp, wood, and rag papers.

SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, and batik. No heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary, and the dye leaves fabric completely soft. On paper, SolarFast has zero relief, and will not affect the texture of the printed surface whatsoever. For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener.

SolarFast thins and cleans up with water.

  • Three 2 oz/59 ml bottles of SolarFast (Orange, Violet and Blue))
