I’m pleased to say in spite of some of the challenges presented by some of the temperamental aspects of the dye today, the results were more than pleasing. Students were still working to wrap up their projects and I was happy to find that some were going beyond and trying other techniques.
I’d gotten the vat off to a slow start due to my having relied on a food warmer as opposed to my usual burner. I’m not entirely sure that was all of it, but in some cases the dye wasn’t as dark as I’d hoped (in spite of over dyeing several times). Still, the results were good in the end. Tomorrow we’ll do it all over again.
