Ice Dyeing- Soda Ash Presoak
Ok...now THIS is more like it! The soda ash presoak made a big difference. The dye strike was, of course, faster and that allowed the ice to act as a resist. I also can see areas where the snow that had fallen and wasn't entirely shaken off acted as a resist also. Still not sure I would want to do this on a larger scale. Maybe when my studio in Chester is done and I have direct access from the dye studio to the outdoors.....Now I am on to other things. My challenge piece for the West MI Art Quilters.

    Teri, these are fabulous, what a difference. we don't get much snow or ice so I won't be having a go, but loved watching your experiments

    I tried this about a month ago when our weather here in Georgia was pretty darned cold. You got lots better results than I did, even though i did the soda ash soak before dyeing. Hmmmm, wonder if the snow was the difference???

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
