Snow Dye


With a snow fall comes the opportunity to snow dye. The following photos show how it is done: Prepare the fabric for dyeing then scrunch it up in a ball and put into a colander. Cover with lightweight polyester fabric so dye particles don’t leave spots on the fabric. Cover with several inches of snow. Sprinkle 3 or 4 different colours of powdered fabric dye onto the snow then let the snow slowly melt. Shake out the dyed fabric and see the surprising results.
