There’s been so much talk about snow dyeing on the lists I belong to…perhaps it’s because there’s been so much snow! I had to start dyeing this week for the show I am doing in March. I wanted to wait for it to warm up a bit, but that wasn’t happenin’ so I cranked up the heater in the garage and got to work. Since I had all the stuff out, and since there was snow on the ground, I decided to try my hand at snow dyeing. I scrunched three yards up in a tub (my usual method of dyeing), picked up a bunch of snow and put on top (and it was very cold too), then poured three different dye colors on top. I used greenish brown, bordeaux and a purple-y dye I found left over in my dye fridge. Here’s how it came out. All three yards look pretty much like this. Interesting.
I used to be an x-ray tech, so basically some of the shapes in this fabric reminds me of intestines…too much information?
