Natural Indigo Blue

I had a few days off of work last week with my last being tomorrow so I had a full weekend of making an indigo vat and dyeing some puppets for an upcoming installation. I just finished mordanting them to overdye tomorrow and the rest of this week!

Pre-mordanting is always my least favorite part because you can’t see any change afterwards, but it leads to some gorgeous colors later! I had to do all five pieces one-by-one because my pot isn’t big enough, I’m soon going to need to invest in a bigger guy!
