After my experimentation with snow dyeing last week (here and here), I couldn't resist doing a little more. I got some comments from people who don't have snow (lucky for them!), but I understand this can be done using ice cubes too, so you could always buy a bag of ice, or make lots of your own and see what you get. I'm sure if you Google it you'll find some helpful tips.
This time around, I used several colours in the same bin: yellow, green, red, purple and black. I used one larger piece of fabric (about ½ a metre) as well as two skeins of thread.
Here you can see the bin in three stages, the first with snow piled on the fibre, then with the Procion MX dye powder sprinkled on and the snow beginning to melt.
Enter some Procion H that I have in my stash. It's idea for silk painting or dyeing threads and silk rovings, but I decided to play...
Notice I don't really care for wearing gloves. LOL
Anyway, back to the fabric...here's what it looks like now, after the addition of the Procion H liquid dye. Now this is something I can get excited about!
I'll be back Monday to show you all the threads that I've dyed over the last little while. Until then, have a great weekend!
