If you have ever fancied being able to print photos you have taken on to fabric, a new way of printing using just sunlight, called the Lumi Process has arrived on the Kickstarter crowd funding website.
The Lumi Process is a revolutionary new photographic print process for textiles and natural materials that uses water based dyes called Inkodye which develop their colour when exposed to sunlight. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Inkodye can bind to any vegetal or animal fiber, such as cotton, wool, silk, suede or even wood, and once the dye is exposed to sunlight, the ink is permanent. The beauty of the Lumi Process is that is allows you to show a range of tonality rather than just half-tone patterns.
The Lumi Process is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think the Lumi Process is something you would enjoy printing with, jump over to the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the Lumi Process become a reality.
