First Indigo Vat!

19 Jul


Here are my Swatches from a 1,2,3 Lime Fructose Indigo Vat.  This had 20 grams of Natural Indigo in 3 gallons of water tp begin with.  I have been working with it over she past 5 days and I am having trouble keeping it in Reduction.  the pH keeps going to low.  I have added lime and it has returned to a pH of 7 again.  The last 2 dips did not darken the swatches much at all.  these have been rinsed and soaked in a vinegar rinse-  I am not crazy about the hand of the silks either.  What do you think?Image
