Kit Vat Tute

Hello Awesome Dyers!

This is my first attempt at making a tutorial video and it’s pretty imperfect. It’s a real time walk through about how to make the Jacquard Indigo Dye Kit vat. You can follow along as you make your first vat (please forgive me for misspelling Jacquard in the video – I just noticed it).

The kit includes:                                                                                     You will need to gather:

Pre-Reduced Indigo                                                                               Warm Water – about 3 gallons

Reducing Agent                                                                                       Two (or three) containers to mix chemicals

Soda Ash                                                                                                   Stir stick

Short Rubber Gloves                                                                              Dust Mask

Rubber bands – two sizes                                                                      5 Gallon Bucket with Lid

2 wood blocks for itajime                                                                     Natural Fiber Fabrics to dye

Directions                                                                                                Longer rubber gloves for dyeing

I hope you find it helpful!
