Autumn Colors

What are you most proud of? Size of the piece What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try multiple techniques on one piece because you will see dyes attach differently. Also, if the dye doesn't completely dissolve embrace it. I love how the turkey red attached in the shape of tiny dots because I rushed the mixing and it didn't dissolve 100%.

Q&A with fewofakind

everlastindaisy asked:
looks great. How do you use the ice?
fewofakind answered:
Lay piece in a long plastic tub, put your snow or ice over the fabric, cover all fabric then sprinkle your dye powder over the snow or ice, wait for the snow or ice to melt then the dye grabs hold of the fabric. Note: fabric. It's be soaked in the soda solution before you start the process.
