I so wanted to try out the discs for the blog but I didn't have an indigo vat so I thought I'd try some MX dye. Unfortunately you have to let your piece soak in dye and soda ash and before I could say boo, the dye soaked into the silk. I washed it out by hand and although not the outcome I was looking for at least it gave an indication of what the resist might look like. Indigo is such a quick dunk, I'm betting this will look great on a rayon infinity scarf. I bought 30 of them for anyone who might want to try it. They aren't included in the workshop but I am just charging what I paid for them.
This is a rayon infinity scarf with Plexiglas resists.
This was an 8" wide silk charmeuse scarf I had kicking around. I don't like narrow scarves (ours are 14" wide) but it was OK for an experiment. MX dye did not lend itself well to silk but it was interesting.
