Best Yet Florida Ice

image
When I rinsed this piece I thought it was not going to be very good.
It is amazing what happens between the final rinse out and the wash out and ironing.
I’m really pleased with this one.
I’d like to say I am so good at this that I can get results like this time and time again.
Not True!
It’s so serendipitous what happens when I do these.
Some factors that come into play COULD be the amount of dye, the placement of the dye, the amount of ice,  the temperature, the amount of soda ash, and the time.
Will I create another that surpasses this one?
I’d love to, but it’s not really my skills that make this happen.
I’m not done yet!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again “If you want to do ice dyeing get the basic directions from the Dharma website and then play with your fabrics and dyes and hopefully yours will be as good as or even better than these!”

Two Questions: 1. What size is this? 44"x44"?
2. I know that you save and bag your ice from your refrigerator ice maker. Is this ice crushed or cubed?
Your design is absolutely remarkable! Of course you know that. But the colors are amazing and I just pray that you leave it as a whole cloth piece with perhaps some border or not, either way, please do not cut it!
