DIY “Do it yourself” ethic refers to the Self-sufficiency through learning by doing.Two examples of DIY products that transform ink into useful tools for any end user.
Lumi Inkodye® is an alternative to the traditional screen-printing powered by sunlight. It is a photosensitive dye activated by sunlight or UV light. It works on cotton, linen, silk, rayon, canvas, or any other natural and absorbent material as untreated wood and unglazed ceramics. Putting objects or negatives on the dyed surface, they selectively block light from activating Inkodye’s color, developing the image. When the picture is carried out after activating the ink, it is necessary to use a laundry detergent that removes unexposed Inkodye from materials and helps set the color of prints.
Bare Conductive Paint is a water based multipurpose electrically conductive material which applies to almost any surface for fixing and prototyping, including cardboard, paper, wood, wallpaper, walls, textiles, and some plastics. Painting, screen printing & spray painting are the main application processes on the surface.
