Here are the finished pieces from the annual
Quilter's Holladay Dye Party this week. . .
I mixed some complimentary colors in my ice dye parfait
so I did get some browns
but I also ended up with some really nice color combinations!
The top of the parfait:
The middle piece:
And the bottom that got a bit more muddy:
But still lots of cool sparkles and shapes.
I also decided to try ice dyeing over a
black and white polka dot commercial print.
I really like the results.
Half yard piece:
A close up of the texture:
And then two similar pieces and their close ups:
I overdyed these next two in ziplock baggies:
I brought a few pieces of dyed fabrics to do some thermofax screening on but once they had been soaked in the soda ash and laid out to dry - they didn't dry! How is it possible to have too much humidity in UTAH?!? I live in the high mountain desert! I guess I should have laid them over the fence instead of on the grass. Anyway I didn't realize the piece wasn't completely dry until I started printing and the images weren't turning out very crisp. I decided to throw the piece in a ziplock baggie and throw more dye on top.
Who knew I would like it even more!
Perhaps a little more printing???
Not sure what I will make with all of these yet,
but I hope to find a fun project in the near future!
Tomorrow I will show you my photos of the seven ponies
that live in the yard
behind where we had the dye party.
