It got too cold. I think. I just couldn’t find a way to keep it warm enough but not too hot.
I debated quite a bit and finally decided to keep the first batch and revive it. I hope. I used the same method as the new batch and plan to slowly warm it to 110 degrees and cross my fingers and pray!
I also started a new Indigo vat with a new strategy.
Off to local box store for an enamel canning pot 20 quart (you may remember last time I used a plastic dog food bin).
Then I used my second batch of materials (Indigo powder, madder, soda ash & bran) in warm water.
Pulled out my retro Salton food warming tray and a blankie.
I put a ceramic plate under the plastic bin, and just set the enamel pot right on top of the warming try.
I set it to just above OFF on the dial (love retro, but really miss the ability to set a digital temp).
I will stir daily and hope they both live. I need to get a few things dyed before the holidays. LOL
I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully the first vat will be revived and the second will survive.
