It's a lot of fun to create your own design and have it printed without screen printing, with really easy clean up.
How did we get a Lumi kit at ADX? Well, first we registered as a makerspace, and when an e-mail said "Would you like to try Lumi?" we said Yes!
Step 1: Developing
I figured that a developing technique like dodging could be adapted to Lumi, so I tried it.
Dodging is where you use your hands to control where and how much light gets to a print, Block an area, and it's lighter, make a cup with your hands and expose just one area, and it'll be darker.
Step 2: Wait, What?
First I printed up a test sheet, in this case 9 of the D's from the ADX logo. I marked the size of the print on my cloth with a washable fabric pencil.
I covered the bottom, to have a lighter row.
Step 6: Wash It Out
The ones that were covered were lighter,
The top row was pretty dark, for being outside for 15 minutes
The magnifying glass ones were a little darker, and I'd guess it took about 5 minutes off the regular developing time.
Also you can see where I got outside the lines with dye placement.
