Sun Prints with Dye Na Flow!

Let me introduce you to Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow, an exciting, versatile medium that you have probably passed in the store a million times!

Dye-Na-Flow is a free flowing, highly pigmented, liquid acrylic paint which produces very transparent, bold colors. It is also highly lightfast! It is made for use with any untreated fabric, both natural and synthetic, however, it can be used on any absorbent surface like gesso, wood, and concrete, as well as nonabsorbent surfaces like Yupo synthetic paper and Mylar (aka Dura-Lar). As always, please do a test on your chosen material before you begin your project. 

The fluid acrylic spreads through fabric until is it thoroughly absorbed and even and it will not alter the feel of silk or cotton fabric. Heat set with a dry iron or set with Jacquard Airfix (commonly used in productions runs). It is washable once set.

Dye-Na-Flow can be used for a variety of techniques like: spray-on tie dye, watercolor, airbrushing, the salt technique, spritzing through stencils, sponge printing and simplified batik or wax resist effects, including the serti technique. 

Or, as I recently learned---you can use Dye-Na-Flow for sun printing!

See the video below to see how to create sun print with Dye-Na-Flow! (sun printing works best with cotton--please remember to wash out the sizing before you start!)


  1. Wow, I thought Setacolor was the only paint that did that. These are even nicer, with better contrast.
