Indigo Dyeing

i have started doing experiments with natural dyes. I decided to use natural indigo and the 123 method of preparing a vat. I prepared a mini vat in a large bottle and dyed cotton pieces, silk pieces, watercolour paper and cotton threads. I was really happy with the result as I have not prepared this type of vat before.

I took a photo of my results using the various fibres.  I plan to use the pieces to make a Dye Journal and to do some boro type stitching.



cheers
