Painted face

A couple of years ago I painted this fabric. As I had no use for it at the moment it ended up in my stash. This month the theme for Sky-is-the-Limit is painted face and I knew that I had the perfect fabric for this :-). The outlines of the face are stitched on it.

ice cubes

There are different ways of using ice cubes in dyeing. In this case I made dye concentate and froze this into ice cubes containers. I have special ones for dyeing purposes.

In a big container I placed a soda soaked piece of fabric and placed a number of ice cubes on top of it. I used a yellow one and two different blues.

Covered everything with a second piece of fabric and left it there till the ice cubes were melted.

After rinsing and washing these are the fabrics:

The top one was the fabric which was on top. I can see that because there are more white or very lightly colored areas.
