Illumination

When you do a discharge indigo and use two different discharge pastes, one containing a chrome orange dye, you get an Illuminations. This style of printing is one of my favorites!



This is the back of the 3rd block. Note the areas of white and orange showing through.

  1. I just found an 1842 hexagons quilt with indigo fabric in mint condition. If you're studying indigos, which it appears you are, let me know if you'd like to see pictures. The indigos are small scale prints with chrome orangey-yellowy. There are some pictures on my blog a couple days ago, but I can get you close-ups if you want.
