Indigo play date with Marcella



Here are some "before", "process" and "after" pictures of our recent playdate. There was some indigo left in the vat from the Maine Event. It was still green after 3 days so Marcella wanted to dye some of her great Goodwill finds. By the time she finally made it to the house, the indigo was blue. I made a fresh half vat and we played. She was doing large pieces of clothing so I went first with my four scarves.

Marcella took her shirts home to wash and dry and I hope to get some photos from her asap.
