Spoiler: That stinky ass mordant that threw everything cock eyed.
I found an online source that recommended that fabric soak in mordant over night (instead of three days) so I pulled everything out today (please, follow my example and ignore all the dirty dishes on my counter). I won’t lie to you, pouring various stinky liquids form jar to jar and mixing them all up is fun as hell. I felt very evil scientist-y.
Backing up, check out these fermenting bean bubbles.
Next time (oh yes, this will happen again), I will try and time it better. I am sorry to horrify all you frugal bean eaters out there, but I threw the beans away. I don’t even have room in my frozen compost pile for them.
I think it looks pretty brown here.
Maybe a but purple. But, when I threw in the mordant soaked fabric,
GREEN! Muddy green, at that. It looks greener in real life than in the picture. I’m pretty disappointed/stoked to play with mordants in the future. That’s why I will have a next time and I’m not even done with my this time. Right now, they are lined up on my windowsill, wedged between the proof that I shouldn’t be allowed to have indoor plants.
More tomorrow; I’ll check them in 24 hours, hoping for a blue miracle.
