Gradation

Gradation I am learning that achieving a smooth gradation is much harder than it looks. A lot depends on the maturity of the indigo bath as well as its "attitude" that day. ie: if it is feeling a little over excited or if it is feeling a bit tired. You must adjust your dye method depending upon its temperament. This was my practice run with 2 meters of silk organza. Wish me luck with dyeing 6 meters!
