Indigo Vat, this vat lives in this plastic bucket year round, it has been in this bucket for about five years now and has quite a bit of sediment on the bottom of the vat.
Quebracho Red - a tree dye that is high in tannin
Quebracho Black - comes from the same tree as quebracho red!
I'm having problems with posting today, not sure if it's a blogger issue or not. Here's some pics of quebracho black and red, about five minutes after I put the silk fabrics into the pots. Tomorrow the colors will be much much deeper. I'm off now to start an osage orange pot, I'm behind in my green challenge piece for the Natural Surfaces Challenge, and I have a LOVELY indigo vat I don't want going to waste~!
