Free Class – Lumi: Photo Printed T-ShirtAugust 23, 2017 / byFree Designs Admin / Categories : Free Classes, Free Project
In this class, Jesse gives a thorough lesson on how to print photographic images onto fabric using Inkodye – a light-sensitive fabric dye that develops into rich, permanent colors in the sun. She begins by explaining what kind of pictures will make a clean, crisp print, and then goes on to share several methods for turning a photograph into a negative image, including how to use the Lumi app to customize, and how to print your own negative transparencies at home on an inkjet printer. Once your negative has been created, Jesse carefully explains the steps for applying the Inkodye and exposing the shirt to sunlight to develop the color. Jesse also shares great ideas for altering the negative to achieve cool, unexpected effects. You’ll wind up with a crisp replication of the original photo and a negative you can use over and over again for printing.
