123 vat left, chemical vat right:
The 123vat though did not oxidize, just came out with this “stain”. The chemical vat did oxidize, but the colour depth is sad. Starting to think that though the old vat *looks* impossible, i *might* be able to revive it again one more time. There’s still so much indigo in it, that i wonder if a big kick just won’t get it going again.
If i can get this 123vat to work harder, i’ve decided this will be not only the first, but the last time i do this one. I’m not such a purist that “organic” is going to matter much in the long run.
