Lumi Process Lets You Print on Fabric – Using Sunlight!

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 8, 2012


If you’ve ever tried to do tie-dye projects, then you know they can be messy and exhausting if you’re not careful. Plus, the results are unpredictable, so sometimes you can end up with neat threads while you might get some blah-looking patterns for all the other times. As an alternative, there’s Inkodye.

Lumi InkodyeThe entire thing is based on the Lumi process, which makes use of the Inkodye. Inkodyes are mixable, dilutable, and water-based dyes which develop their color under the sunlight. Its makers mean for people to use its light-sensitive properties to their advantage to create artistic prints and even transfer photographic images onto fabric.

The project is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. For a minimum pledge of $35 (USD), you can get a complete Inkodye starter kit that contains everything you need to start dyeing.
