Thermocromic dyes are respondent to changes in temperature. With changes of the enviroment - elevation of temperature, thermochromic dyes change their coloured features from colored to colorless or vice versa. This phenomenom is reversable any time the temperature comes down to stable stage. Thermocormic dyes are microcapsulated and therefore can be applied to textiles by techniques such as textile printing or impregnating dyeing.
Togehter with mentor Mateja Kert, you'll learn to prepare transparent or cover printing pastes with micropasulated thermochromic dyes, with possible combination of classic pigments. All those combinations have different end results. You will be able to transfer the printing paste onto textile item using the screen printing process.
Takeaway from the workshop will be a brand new favourite printed textile piece and a good overview and knowledge of thermochromic systems used in textiles and their operation.
