A weekend of Discovery

Posted on

This weekend I decided to set up a new chem vat and test my skills at bringing a hydros vat back to life after it had been left to oxygenate and turn cold. It was actually quite successful! I tested on 3 different fabrics and got quite similar colours across all 3 which was interesting, […]

Dyeing with Indigo is a new direction for me, I’m not quite sure why I haven’t gotten to it earlier! In the past few days I have just begun to dye with it. I’ve started out with a hydros vat, but I think I will be moving to a zinc lime vat, so I can […]
