Indigo Moon



I am still working on my landscapes. I thought I'd try a few night landscapes with a discharged moon. I had some compressed sponge which I had had for years and it was starting to plump just a tad. I also had some new compressed sponge as flat as a sheet of paper from the DMTV shop. I thought it would be interesting to see which was harder to cut with scissors and which grew taller with water. 



It turned out each was equally easy to cut with tiny scissors and they all expanded to the same size when wet.




I was working with some indigo dyed fabric so I used the compressed sponge with Jacquard discharge paste




Wet and waiting for the paste to dry




And now the big surprise. Indigo discharges yellow green like indigo in it's liquid form. I was disappointed but maybe others want a yellow orb. Back to the drawing boards.

  1. You could use it to do an under the sea theme. I didn't know that it turned yellow green. I'm sure you'll be able to make something with it. I love seeing all the things you do and play with!! Thanks for sharing, Pam Gonzalez
