So how the hell does Lumi work? It all starts with a special liquid called Inkodye. Inkodye is a photosensitive dye which is activated by light or UV. You can then use negatives or objects to block light from activating inkodye, leaving you with cool designs. The entire process is really easy and fun:

  1. Apply Inkodye – Coat your shirt or fabric with sunlight-activated Inkodye in a dim environment.
  2. Pin Negative – The negative selectively blocks light from activating the dye. Make your own printing pattern either by using your 120 or large format b&w negatives, or by printing your photo onto your Inkofilm from your digital scans (by inverting the image, making it b&w and with a high contrast) or just draw directly on the Inkofilm with a black matte marker to express your artistic self!
  3. Expose – Inkodye develops its color in sunlight or bright UV, about 10 to 20 minutes on a bright day.
  4. Peel – Remove the negative in a dim environment to reveal your print.
  5. Wash – Remove the unexposed dye using Inkowash to make your print permanent.
  6. Wear – You’re done! The print is now permanent and can be washed without special care.
