Ice Dye

I've been on vacation from work this week. It has been so nice to do "a little bit of this and a little bit of that" all week.  A little bit of ice dyeing always makes me smile!

This fabric started as a very bright watermelon color. Too bold for my liking.

I used "nickel" (pro chemical & dye) procion dry powdered dye on top of a layer of ice.  This piece is my favorite of my little experiments.  You can still see how bright the watermelon color was on the right side of the fabric.

A close up view:

"Amethyst" dye.  Too purple for me.  Off you go to another dye bath...

"Wisteria" and a little "Amethyst".  Not crazy about this one either:
