snow dyeing

Like so many other people I have been taking advantage of the snow we have here. No need now to use my snow cone machine :-). Here are 3 samples of what I dyed today. I used two variations of this technique. For the top two pictures I used a container instead of my usual colander. There was no way that the melting snow could get away. The results surprised me a bit, I had thought that there would be more even colored fabric as the dye/melted snow mixture would have been into contact with the fabric for a longer period.

The third piece was done using a colander. For these 1/5 yard pieces I used Sage, Musk Melon and Pearl Grey.

I love the results Wil. All the ones I have viewed are so different. What kind of dyes are you using?

One more thing, you got more color using the colander...I wouldn't have thought that .
