I've been ice dyeing scarves to fill an order at the Folk Art Center where I sell my scarves. I love ice dyeing as the results are usually so pretty and a surprise. You also need a sunny day and we've had so much rain, it's been difficult to find a long stretch of sun.
I cover the tray with black plastic, clipped on the side with clothespins and then some old bathroom rugs to act as an insulation. I let them batch overnight although 4 hours or until the ice is well melted would probably work.
Pictures shown are just the rayons and they are quite bright. Whenever I use a different combination of colors, I make a small sample - @ 12 x 14 and label it. It's nice to have a reference when you're making them for a shop. You will never get the same thing twice but you can get the same feel using the same colors.
I like the one on the right and would have no clue what I used but luckily I do have the sample.
The one on the left was an Indigo from a couple of weeks ago but decided it needed some overdyeing...not sure I love it, but I'll include it anyway as many people really like Indigo.
The one above never had yellow used in the orginal dye combination. I must have been using yellow/gold nearby and some drifted over onto this scarf - a happy mistake. The name of this series (noted on hangtag) is called Impressionistic Garden as they do remind me of a colorful flower garden or painting.
Tomorrow is Fiber Junkies with a new skill...Can't wait and will report.
