Because I am dyeing a lot of blue in this batch of fabric and it often takes more time to fix, I have been very patient and left it in for 24 hours.  Meanwhile, I have been downloading and printing some of my photos of Iceland in the snow. I hope to work with these. My first job will be experimenting with replicating some snow and ice effects.

Blue Dyes on Ice

I placed several fabric types in this set up and used five blues and a little magenta, black and yellow dyes sprinkled on top.

Ice Melting

After a few hours the dye had worked off the top and into the fabric layer.

All colour no ice – nearly

ice has almost gone but I want to wait the 24 hours.

First rinse

Three fabric samples, more colourful in reality.

The 2 Totnes cottons

These were superb, finer threads, more of them to accept the dye.

There we go a hugely successful dye set to start me off and another post thanks to my IPad rather than my tablet ( and some guidance).
