Hi Luise, just a quick one…after the 2 hours cooking, you let the bundles cool down in the same water? or you open it immediately after for rinsing drying and ironing? thank you, Adriana
I tend to let the bundle cool down in the water to give the colour extra time to set. But occasionally I open them straight away and haven’t noticed a difference.
In the above video are your soy cloths and dye/iron blankets wet or dry? You don’t say but it looks and sounds like they are dry. Enjoying this tutorial been wanting to purchase it now for a while.
Hello, glad to hear you are enjoying it. Yes, they are dry. I tend to work with dry fabric as it will get saturated inside the dye pot very quickly anyway, and then I don’t need to wear gloves to handle the iron blanket. But I know some other eco-printers work with wet blankets, so I always recommend that people experiment and find their own preferred methods.
