How to keep from fading?
You mentioned that you work with 6 indigo varieties—do they cross pollinate or do you keep them in different areas? What is the history of your own plants—where dis your very first seeds come from?
Botanical Colors sells food grade lime :-)
I've bought lime from the Mexican markets that use them for tortillas
do you Wash the pigment once it is filtered, or use vinegar?
Your FB group sounds like what I need. So far I've done grown my own indigo-done wet extraction method-ph step-aeration and have dye liquid product stored in jars. Not sure next steps on how to dry into cakes or create the vat. Next to learn next steps
yes please washing the pigment is a great question
Brit’s FB group is excellent
Great explanation, thanks.
What's the longest time you've fermented? What temperature is best for extracting? Have you extracted in cold tempuratures?
So! I froze my leaves! Any suggestions?
