blue-tiful

fresh woad

I decided to see if there would be any colour in these woad leaves. They’ve been frozen a few times, which is definitely not according to textbook.

woad vat

No matter how much pigment is in the leaves, the vat, and the material soaked in it, are “indigo white”. The blue doesn’t show until the material is exposed to air.
