We started with Indigo dye kits, mixing the dye powder, soda ash and thiox. Once mixed, it created a "flower"or cluster of bubbles that needed to be skimmed off before the fabric was placed in the vat.
Here are some of the results.
Look at all of that indigo blue!
All in all, it was a very fun day, and a process that some will continue to explore, and others not! After washing, some of the fabrics retained their dark color and some faded quite a bit, so that is another puzzle to solve. There were also several blue hands and lovely blue fingernails!
Perhaps a Raven Mavens Indigo show in the future? Stay tuned!
