Bananas, Indigo & Dragonflies

9 Jun

Yesterday was simmering overripe bananas and starting an indigo pot to ferment

 Last week was clamping a silk scarf with a dragonfly fold and dipping in pomegranate given to me by a dye buddy.

   Today was checking the indigo pot for bloom & color & dipping some skeins to see how the banana sugar juice worked.

 And finally “attempting” to refold the dragonflies somewhere close to the original, reclamping with detail side of wood block and giving it an indigo dip.   

   It’s fun and you do have to practice acceptance of slight misslignments. But…it gives movement to the flight of color, don’t you agree?
