Photochromic Silk Screen Printing Ink

Photochromic screen printing ink contains pigments that react to sunlight and UV light and changes from colourless to coloured:
More specifically, in the shade, the paint is colourless and almost transparent, whereas when the photochromic ink is exposed to light, it becomes coloured immediately.
Of course, this colour change is reversible and the photochromic ink returns to its colourless state after a few moments in the shade.
The ink is semi opaque and offers low coverage, so we must take into account this characteristic by playing with the background colour: this background colour must necessarily be lighter: e.g. white, sky blue, light green, yellow, etc.

Its composition and thick texture makes it perfect for silk screen printing on fabrics.
