Here are two pillow cases that are my first ice dyes. The first is Deep Purple. The process of ice dyeing is putting the dry powder on top of ice that has been placed on top of the scrunched fabric. As the ice melts the dye powder will separate into the colors contained in the dye.
The second color is Mermaid Blue.
There is a lot I could tell you about what I didn't do right. Out of everything the worst part is that the mosquitoes were so bad outside that I had to do everything in my little kitchen which made it a little more difficult to arrange the fabric, ice and powder.
All and all it was a great first try. My biggest fear was of the Grand Girl getting into the dye and going home with a permanent blue or purple hand. She was good though and didn't seem to be to interested in what I was doing.
P.S. The Grand Girl is spending the week. She is talking me to death!!! Know what I mean? Oh for a little silence.
PPS I know. I'll be lonesome when she goes home.
