Woad - how to use and mix properly
Posted by samantha on June 13, 2002 at 16:05:12:
1) get your ingredients into a airtight container. You'll need to add
bran to thicken it.
2) leave for 6 weeks-ish
3) after the 6 weeks take of the lid and you will be left with a -
non blue liquid. This needs to be whisked to let the air in. The foam
produced will turn blue. You will then have your Woad dye.
A couple of pointers. You can use a tablet to suck out all the air
but be warned this will make the waod rather caustic and too strong
for application on the skin.
A woad stain will probaby stain between 1 year to 18 months. Are you
sure you want to play with this stuff cause if your design goes wrong
Your client will be left with it for a hell of a long time
