Photographers, screen printers, print makers and dyers rejoice: with SolarFast, Jacquard has taken photography out of the darkroom and opened up a whole world of light-powered print making! SolarFast is a light-developed dye that is permanent and archival on any natural fabric or artist paper. This means you can now print continuous tone photographs in any color, directly onto paper or fabric, without a darkroom, without additional chemicals, without heat setting, without steaming... it's fast and easy and the results will blow you away! SolarFast is also great for tie dyeing, batik, screen printing, painting, and more - it is alwyas completely soft on fabric, and you never have to worry about setting the colors the way you do with other paints, inks, and dyes.
This demo will cover the entire process and show you how to turn a snap shot, drawing or found image into a t-shirt or artist print in a matter of minutes!

If you took all the pigments in the color spectrum and mixed them together, what color would you make?
Every spring, Gamblin Artists Colors collects a wealth of pigments from our Torit® Air Filtration system. We filter the air around the areas where we handle dry pigments so that our workers are not exposed to pigment dust. Rather than sending any of our high quality, expensive pigments into the landfill, Gamblin paint makers recycle them into "Gamblin Torrit Grey".
"Pigment dust should not go into the earth, water or landfill, but into paint," says Robert Gamblin.
The mix of pigments is different every year, so Torrit Grey is always unique and will never be repeated. Torrit Grey tends to have a greenish tinge because of the great strength of the Phthalo Green pigment, which is a dark bluish green. Torrit Grey varies from a medium dove grey to a dark earthy grey.
We are now dating the tubes, so artists can collect them from year to year and enjoy the unique qualities of each edition. Whatever you create with these popular limited edition colors is solely up to you and your imagination.
Our Torrit Grey store promotion, which runs each year through the end of April in celebration of Earth Day, not only recycles pigment dust into paint but focuses artists on the importance of recycling, studio and environmental safety. Last year, we distributed more than 11,000 tubes of Torrit Grey! Limitations are often your greatest creative assets and it is remarkable what talented artists can achieve with a color palette limited to white, or black and Torrit Grey.
