This is a great EASY pattern that looks great on everything. You will need tongue depressors, rubber bands and some cellulose fabric. Cotton, Linen, Rayon work best.
In this video I mix up a thiox vat. The vat has been going for a few days so I add some of the ingredients to "punch it up" This is a good way to reuse your thiox vat. You can get away with adding a smaller amount of ingredient then you would if you were to start from scratch. And you don't have to throw out a vat that might have a little more life. So it's a win win. I just add 2parts, indigo, 2 parts soda ash, and 1 part thiox. I also washed with a few tablespoons of synthrapol. Synthrapol helps to keep the blues blue and the whites white.
Supplies: Cellulose Fiber to dye (such as 100% cotton)- Pre washed
