How do negatives work?

Negatives are black-and-white transparency sheets that make it easy to selectively block light from activating Inkodye's color. With negatives you can create detailed photographic or vector artwork with continuous tone going beyond what traditional screen-printing can do.

Negatives are not required for shadow prints, Sunfold prints, dip dye, and many other Inkodye techniques.

You can order create negatives through the Inkodye app, or print them at home using inkjet-printable Inkofilm transparency sheets. For best results, the black areas of your negative must be opaque to sunlight.

Negatives can be reused, if you take care not wrinkle them. Use a small amount of water or window-cleaning solution on a paper towel to wipe it clean. This method will allow you to reuse a negative dozens of times.
