   We’ll begin the session one with the basics of indican, the foundation of our blue, to make sure that we are all starting from a shared base of knowledge.
  In session two, we’ll venture into extracting what most of us just throw away–the yellow found in indigo cells, kaempferol. So right there we have blue and yellow, and by extension, green. Why stop there?
  Also found within the cells of our friend Percy, is a dye called indirubin that will amaze us with shades of magenta. And, armed with this red, we will be able to produce a full color palette of blues, greens, yellows, oranges, reds, and purples. Percy is so like some our very best friends–perhaps quiet and retiring in appearance but overflowing with hidden treasures if only we show a little patience and take time to get to know them.
