SolarFast ™

Odorless and safe for children!

SolarFast dyes develop their color 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 fabrics in any color! SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more. No heat setting, chemical or steam fixing necessary! The dye leaves fabric completely soft. On paper, SolarFast has zero relief and will not affect the texture of the printed surface whatsoever. SolarFast thins and cleans up with water.


  • Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge, brayer or squeegee. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the color magically appear!
  • Place objects on the coated surface prior to exposing to block development and create photograms. Any object that casts a shadow will create an image.
  • Use a film negative to create permanent photographs on paper or fabric. Prints are washable and lightfast.

For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener.

All natural fibers, including: cotton, linen, canvas, silk, hemp, wood, rag papers and more!
