Indigo Surprise

Just when I thought I would abandon the indigo vat I have been nurturing since June of 2013 it surprises me. The liquid had floating pieces of dust and leaves from the backyard and was not nearly as translucent as I would like, but I gave it one more chance. I refreshed it, set it out in the sun, and waited a day. I did not add any indigo crystals, it seemed like there were enough floating pieces in the liquid that I could see. When I took off the lid I was surprised by this huge bloom. The silk chiffon scarfs below were only dipped once. If you would like to see more images of my textiles, check out my Etsy shop,  . . . and thanks for looking.

Just posted some new designs on my estsy shop, which you can find here
I have been experimenting with ombre effects and indigo. I almost don't want to part with this ombre indigo scarf that I wore last week to the Counting Crows concert at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. Before the show we had dinner at Cheeseboard. Don't let the line intimidate you, it's worth the wait. And okay I am willing to part with this silk chiffon scarf. Thanks for visiting my shop.
