SolarFast is also great for painting, tie dyeing, screen printing, stamping, batik and more! Shake well before use. Apply SolarFast to fabric or paper using a brush, sponge or brayer. While still damp, expose the design to sunlight and watch the color magically appear! Place objects on coated substrate to block development during exposure.
