Indigo Round 2
On Saturday we dipped some more prepared pieces in the indigo dye pot, trying different folding, tying and resist techniques. We also thought we'd show what the "bloom" or "flower" looks like that forms on the top of the pot. When you want to use the indigo, you first remove the bloom and set it aside, then replace it when you are finished. As long as the bloom lasts on top of the pot, your dye is still active. If it disappears, the pot will need to be refreshed. You can read more about maintaining an indigo pot at the ProChem or Dharma websites.
