To continue our adventures with ice dyeing, the next morning and with coffee in hand, we ventured outside to check on our bundled treasures. There was actually ice on some of them but we felt it had batched long enough to get great color.The buckets you see in the background were parfait dyed with 3 layers of fabric, 3 different dyes and ice in between - great results.
Meanwhile fabrics were soaking in a bucket of water with just a drop of synthrapol. The soaking only takes 5 - 10 minutes depending on the weight of the silk...it needs to be very wet - through and through. Again we had colored silk fabric for overdyeing as well as white silk.
Off the Wall Friday and Whoop Whoop Friday.
