dyeing

The last couple of days I have been experimenting with ice dyeing. Ice at least I can make the whole year through while snow is rare here :-) Al though I might buy a snow cone machine later this year. Unfortunately I can not tell you which dyes I used for which piece as I did not keep notes. I know that I used Bordeaux from G&K and I think Olive as well. The colors are more intense on the pieces which I nuked after melting/batching. For some of these pieces I put the dye mixture into the freezer and let it just freeze. On other fabrics I have placed ice cubes and let them melt there. Each technique gives a slightly different effect. And they are all different from snow dyeing. Here are some results:
