Inkodye Photo Printing Kit: This creative kit allows you to use wet darkroom photography techniques to create unique works of art on fabric, wood (or nearly any material). Simply paint on the liquid, then put a negative (or any object) on top of it and put it in the sun. The UV (or sunlight) develops it so there's no need for a darkroom. This starter kit gets you set up with everything you need to make a print: blue, black & purple dyes, four blank negatives, a fabric swatch, step-by-step video instructions, a test negative and detergent to stop the developing. You can use negatives to print pictures or use small objects—like plants, feathers, coins, toys, paper cut outs—to create silhouettes. The kit has a retail value of $39.
