Snow Dyeing

I tried snow dyeing with the last snow we had.  It wasn’t much but managed to scrape some up.
I first soaked my fabric in soda ash water.  I used PFD cotton, synthetic satin, a silk scarf, pale eco dyed pieces, scape white with stains.

I used 1/2 tsp. of powdered dye, 1 tsp salt dissolved in  6oz of water for my dye bases.

I placed my fabric on a wire rack over a plastic tray and packed on the snow. Next step was squirting  on the dye.
I will show the before and after pictures for each fabric step by step in the next couple of posts.
