Ice Fabric Dyeing
Did you say you don’t have snow and want to do some dyeing? Well, before I put up my dyeing stuff, I thought I’d try one more type of dyeing – ice dyeing. For those of us who don’t have snow or would like to try this in the summer, this is an alternative. Please read my getting started and my fabric dye precautions posts before attempting this or any fabric reactive dye project. Since Judi had suggested I set my fabric up out of the dye, I tried that this time. I set a metal rack on top of cat food cans which I put into my dyeing container. Folded fabric on rack I topped the fabric with ice cubes. Ice cubes on top of fabric I then sprinkled dye powder over the snow. Green, Raspberry and Yellow Dyes over ice cubes Follow procedures as other dyeing. After 24 hours Now to rinse, wash and dry. And this is what I got from this ice dyeing. Finished Ice Dyed Fabric I am so pleased with this piece.
