A beautiful blue mushroom with a hidden talent!

Appearence

The Indigo Milk Cap is a beautiful mushroom with a turquoise body and a thin white line around the cap. They are mostly found in North America and are very edible.

Biomimicry Idea- Natural Hair Dye

When an Indigo Milk Cap is cut open, a vivid and bright sapphire liquid pours out of the mushroom. This liquid could be made into a natural hair dye that would sell well in salons and stores carrying hair dye.
