FW Flourescents!

Silver White (Lead White)***

One of the first artificially produced pigments, white lead mixes well with oil to a smooth uniform viscosity, has excellent opacity and brush handling qualities. Possessing great surface strength, it is nevertheless toxic in nature and will react by darkening when exposed to sulphur compounds or fumes. The latter reactivity is not too important as lead pigment in use is normally well protected by the oils and varnishes with which it is mixed.

Solarfast is a sunlight-developed dye for paper and natural fabrics

Newly improved: Now odorless and safe for children !


SolarFast dyes are used to create photograms, continuous tone photographs, shadow prints, and ombrès on fabric and paper. 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. Any object that casts a shadow will create a pattern. Use a film negative to create permanent photographs on paper or fabric. After exposure, wash out undeveloped dye with SolarFast Wash and hot water, agitating vigorously. Machine washing is recommended for textiles. Color development is not complete until after washing.

SolarFast thins and cleans up with water.

For screen printing applications, use SolarFast Thickener.

canvas, silk and hemp

Jacquard's Discharge Paste


Discharge paste is a reducing agent for safely removing color from natural fibers, and is even safe on silk. It removes most fiber reactive dyes, direct dyes, and many acid dyes, especially the "leveling" ones. The pre-metallized ones and some milling don't discharge. It is thick enough to block print, brush it on, screen it on, stencil it on, etc. You can apply the paste to your fabric, let it dry and steam it with a steam iron or steam in a steamer for 10 minutes or so, until it stops discharging. Then wash your fabric in a good detergent like Synthrapol, and rinse in Milsoft to restore softness.
