Results are in!

I deemed, snow dyeing day, a success.  It's been awhile, and I completely forgot about all the rules with mixing colors, but it was fun, and I am happy with the results.

Next time I will plan a bit more.











 While I was not too sure about putting fabric under the grates, it worked out great.

This is one of the cloths in the bottom of the pan. Even the run off, dyed a great piece of fabric.







I think this has to be my favorite. It has a Valentines feel to me!





Kind of reminds me of Monet's flower gardens.
For these pieces I took the little bit of snow that was left on the original fabric and dumped it onto a new piece. It's much lighter, but has a beautiful floral look to it. It's a great way to get the most from your dyes!


                                                          This is the piece that I copied LuAnn Kessi's idea for. I just love it. This piece is 36" x 44". It almost could be stretched on a frame and called art all by itself! 

 
So there you have it. My day at play. You see, snow isn't all that bad...
At least if you don't have to get out in it!

  4. These are all absolutely stunning! Oh, what a wonderful addition to your stash! I'd love to try snow dyeing but I have a couple of questions to start with. What kind of fabric do you use and how large are your pieces (I'm guessing 36 X44)? ~Jeanne
