Technique of the week – Season 2 – Week 10 – Sunlight Developed Dyes

totw10titleHello again everyone!  I’m so sorry for the delay in getting these videos up.  I had family in town and then I was not feeling well, so it was a bad time to be making a video when you are not feeling 100%.

This week’s Technique of the Week had so much potential, but I sort of botched the outcome.  Take a look at the video to see what I mean:

So as you can see I had lots of issues with this, but the fabric is still cool, it’s just not developed like I hope it would have.  Maybe I thought it would be like the cyanotype fabrics from the previous TOTW?  Who knows.

In the video I only mention Inkodye by Lumi as the product, but since then I found that there’s even a similar product by Jacquard!  So here’s the links to check them out. (As a reminder, buying through these links supports my TOTW series and keeps it going.)

So also at the end of the video I mention using Barrier Cream to keep my hands from getting dye all over them, and this is the link to the kind I use!

Give this technique a try, I’m sure you’ll have better results than me!
