Ice Tie Dye Technique

Ice Tie Dye

The Ice Dyeing technique is so much fun and really easy.  It uses the same kind of dye as tie dye, but instead of mixing up the dye with water you use ice to mix the power dye into liquid.  I'm making color swatches with a new kit and I think they turned out so nice!  These will help me in the future when I'm picking out colors for new projects.  Color theory and placement are so important! If you have a lot of dyes in your stash then this is a good way to keep track of what they look like. There is still a lot of dye in the containers and I can't wait to make more projects.  The kit comes with soda ash and synthrapol, which is really a great value.  Soda ash fixes the dye before you apply the dye and synthrapol is known as dyers' detergent.  It helps to keep the colors from transfering from the dyed parts of the fabric and going onto the undyed parts of the fabric when washing.

tea dyeing fabric tutorial

Tea Bag Dyeing Fabric

Black Tea is a great natural dye because it is pretty simple and makes a beautiful warm beige color.  Black tea is super easy to find and contains tannins so you won't have to use a mordant.  Salt is added at the end to help the tea stick to the fabric, but salt is not technically a mordant.
