bucket of blue

Some results from yesterday's indigo dyeing session


The soya wax experiment.    Great - indigo and mid blue, no white.



Japanese Larch


Large spirals



Pole wrapping - very 'watery' looking


And, finally....


The 'corset'  Love the marks on this piece.
More experiments I think.  Meanwhile, the forecast
for the weekend is colder with rain.  Fine for the garden
and me.  I feel an indigo quilt coming on.

Thanks all for your comments. I absolutely love indigo dyeing, there's a surprise! It's fun experimenting - never enough time. However, I am now 'finding' time, which is a good thing. The magic of the process never fails to amaze.

Soy wax is easy peasey to remove!
