i couldn't speak till i had gotten a dark color + INDIGO
now i'm trying to get the blue more dark
some more samples in the set

and the book i ordered on indigo dyeing is very good
with very good advice on how to make an indigo vat
and i liked this technique

so that's what i'm going to do wright now
+ it's finally summery in amsterdam

have a nice weekend !

i am absolutely in love with that blue...and i am so beside myself that you cannot find that colour or hue here in montréal.....seriously you have me considering taking up dying...on a more profound level...so i can achieve it myself...:)
