Dye Powder Having a Party!

Silly dye powder... here is a piece I ice dyed using Evergreen and Orange. The cool thing about working with dry dye powder is the unpredictable way the color particles will separate and meander creating unexpected results. Since neither green or orange are primary colors they had quite a party in the ice bath!  It makes me giggle...

    These are some beautiful colours! I love the effect created by the ice dyeing. I have done snow dyeing but have not tried ice. I think that I will have to play. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. I also love snow dyeing but sadly the snow melts and then what are we to do?! I think you'd love the ice dyeing! For me the results are a bit more vivid than with the snow... and of course it is a year round option :) If you want a jumping off point check out this post: Fabric + Dye + Ice Cubes = Awesome!

      I'd love to see your results!
