May 17, 2015 – Shar’s Shibori Resist Cloth

Our indigo pot was strong and hearty. I brought cloth to dip into the pot and decided to put little rubber band resists all over the cloth to see what it would do. I did one, two and three rubber bands in different places. The three rubber band method turned out the best.  Shown in the photos is the cloth after one dip with rubber bands still in and one after the indigo had oxidized.  I was very happy with the results.
