Print with Light free pdf Learn how to harness the power of light to create gorgeous printed projects and surfaces with photosensitive dyes from Lumi CEO Jesse Genet, creator of Inkodyes!Harness the power of light to create gorgeous prints! The newest generation of photosensitive dyes--dyes that activate when exposed to the sun or to ultraviolet light--offers crafters, artists, designers, photographers, and other creative DIYers an easy way to make clean, vivid prints on a variety of surfaces. Developed by two Los Angeles-based designers through their company Lumi, Inkodyes are an innovative and popular line of water-based, photosensitive printing dyes in nine colors that can be used to reproduce art and photographs in full tonal gradations- once fixed, the prints become permanent and can be machine-washed repeatedly without fading. Inkodyes can be used on any absorbent natural fibers, such as cotton, linen, silk, wool, rayon, and natural-blend fabrics, as well as on paper, raw leather, suede, untreated wood, and unglazed ceramics.Written by Jesse Genet, the creator of Inkodyes, "Print with Light" is an inspiring, step-by-step guide to creating personalized prints and projects. Learn to prepare a printing surface- apply the dyes- create shadow prints, sunfold prints, or photo prints on any absorbent natural fibers and natural-blend fabrics, as well as on paper, raw leather, suede, untreated wood, and unglazed ceramics- and how to use light to develop and fix your prints for lasting color. "Print with Light" also offers 25 beautiful, modern projects for fashion, accessories, jewelry, and home decor, including T-shirts, scarves, and other wearables, purses, bangles, lampshades, pillows, and art for framing, some from inspirational Inkodyers who have taken the process beyond a simple DIY activity."
