|Snow Dyed Sleeveless Dress|
|I started with a tub to catch the melting snow and inserted an |
upside down pan to keep the fabric from sitting in the dye mixture once
the snow melted.
|I soaked the fabric in soda ash and water for 30 minutes.|
The fabric was wrung out and placed on the upside down pan.
|I went outside and scooped up fresh snow to cover the fabric.|
|I placed about 3" of snow on the fabric to completely cover.|
|Next I mixed up some dye!|
|I admit this doesn't look like much more than a blob of yuck but have faith!|
|I decided to shake a little dye powder over the top just to see what would happen.|
|Now I wait... the snow was melted by evening but I waited a full 24 hours before rinsing and washing the fabric. I know from experience that if you try to rush the process the end result is muted with very light colors.|
