DIP SESSIONS - INDIGO
We dipped a few of our wooden pieces in natural Indigo dye a few weeks ago. The results are just beautiful. As I write this post, I have one of the Clamps on my desk next to me - the richness and depth of the indigo color is unique. Unlike paint that sits on surface of the wood, or oil that does soak into the wood, the indigo does both and a bit more. It's difficult to describe but it has an almost 'felted' appearance, almost as if a strong gust of wind could carry the indigo away.
The process involves preparing a dye bath, in this case we used a 100% natural 'fruit vat' which basically means no toxic chemicals were involved. Each piece was dipped a random number of times - the more dips, the darker the color. The most dips I think we did was about 10 which gave a really deep blue. A single dip leaves the wood a really beautiful sky blue color, whereas a single dip of fabric is a medium blue.
Although we wanted to keep each and every piece for ourselves, we decided to not be greedy and share these pieces. Available in our SHOP.
