snow dye trial 1: not proven

Well, I scrunched my fabric, put three inches of snow over it, poured on a cup of dye in “scribbles”, and went away for 24 hours.

Result?

Something that looks like a botched even-dye attempt. No fun breaking of colors. No speckles or geometric blotches.  Why?

I suspect it’s because the snow we got is dry and fluffy and let the liquid dye run through very quickly and easily. It didn’t resist very well.

I think I’ll try again… this time with dry powdered dye. I hesitate to work with powdered dye; I don’t like it floating around in the air. But I’ll give it a shot.

The reject blue fabric will just have to be overdyed, I guess.
