UV Sensitive Inks
UV ink is quite remarkable – when indoors it is colourless but once outside and exposed to UV rays, bursts into colour.
We’ve had great success adding it to cotton as the example of this embroidered bird motif shows – indoors he is white and outside the colours come to life! Also we’ve used it in plastics and on good old fashioned paper.
This project is an excellent example of how Printing in China can open up a world of opportunities for the creative use of various materials. We went through many test and experiments to get this project to work and the end result is stunning!
