<p>Sweet! I think it would be extra cool if you added small &quot;star&quot; dots with their resist product. I may have to try this soon...</p>
This is great... Are Lumi products available in India..?
We don't currently have any retailers in India but we ship worldwide from our website! &gt;&gt; http://lumi.co
thank you... I have won the first prize in the Print &amp; Dye contest sponsored by Lumi and will be getting some Lumi products to experiment with
it looks amazing, thanks for posting!
This is fantastic, what type of paper did you use to print your negative on?
We use waterproof inkjet film such as <a href="http://lumi.co/products/inkofilm" rel="nofollow">Inkofilm</a>. You can also have us print your negatives directly through <a href="http://lumi.co/pages/app" rel="nofollow">our app</a>.&nbsp;
Can one use a &quot;negative&quot; printed on overhead transparency film using a laser printer?
Theoretically yes, but the blacks have to have to opaque in order to block sunlight. Depending on your printer and settings you may need to run the film twice or stack two films to create enough density.
Inkodye looks and acts a lot like Cyanotype
Yes, it does! But the chemistry is made for fabric so you can machine wash your prints. Also, you use Inkodye wet instead of letting it dry :)
You can wash Cyanotype fabrics just you can't use phosphates, bleach or sodium soups. ;) but I would like to know how Inkodye gets their reds..
The chemistry of Inkodye is made for fabric - it's chemically a vat dye and in addition to red, and orange we'll be rolling out a whole rainbow of colors! :)
This is AMAZING!! I hadn't heard of Inkodye before, but I will definitely be ordering it now!! <br>
That is the bee's knees! Can the negative be re-used?
Yes it can! You can wipe the back of a negative with a bit of water or window cleaning solution to remove the dye. If you want to be extra safe you can even put a clear piece of film between the dye and the negative to keep the negative completely clean.
i must do this.
Never heard of Inkodye. This looks cool to do.
This is amazing. I have to try this!
WOW, what an amazing product with so many awesome applications and possibilities! From the time I read this ible the gears in my head started turning away! Thank you so much for this!!!
This is AWESOME!!! Don't know how I missed it before!!! Love it!
