Very cool. I wonder how it would work with fiber? Like, white batts maybe? Thanks for showing us.

Nope, just the plain old boxes that you get at the supermarket. I used whole boxes for each piece, so I still got good color saturation. I actually find with hot water dye I get too much color with a whole box of RIT (i.e. darker than I want). So I actually got closer to the colors I wanted with the cold!

This was really fun to read! Your ice dyes came out great and I'm so glad my blog inspired you to try the technique! I'm totally hooked on the ice dyed process. To answer someones earlier question - yes - it will work on most fibers... Go for it! I have another unusual method I've been tweaking and perfecting which I call Confetti Dying! Check out my blog and give it a try! The results are really fun and I'll bet you like it!

Happy Creating,
Carol
