|Beautiful jungle leaf detail quilt|
Basically, you soak white/cotton fabric (accounts vary in what), scrunch up (possibly in artistic ways) and put on a drainable grill over a container. Pack on different shapes/sizes of ice. Sprinkle powdered dye over using different colors and amounts. Let ice melt. Wash/treat fabric. Use to quilt ALL the things!
But seriously, it's kind of a mix between batik and tie dye--I'm really eager to attempt it, and have made a timely Joann's trip to pick up some muslin that coincided with their super sale going on--score! So hopefully there will be more to come on the adventures of ice dyeing...
Got all the things for ice dyeing: Soda ash fixer (pre-wash), synthapol (detergent), powdered dye, plain fabric (Thank you Joann's sales!) and all the safety supplies that go along with it--aprons, masks, etc. First foray will be on the 10th--yay!
