I haven’t tried ice dyeing before, but after seeing a You Tube timelapse video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhBtRaltPIM) I decided to have a go.
I folded up my first fabric samples, thinking to get a Shibori type effect from the pleats and folds but think I used too much powder dye so the colours merged.
I also decided I didn’t need to use as much ice. So batch number 2 was less ice and less dye. The top one was pleated and folded and the lower example was just scrunched up.
For a general background the sample that was just scrunched up looks wonderful, like a garden bed of roses or an exploding nebula. I haven’t got plans for any of these fabrics at the moment, they were just done for fun and experimentation.
