Results from ice dyeing are mind-blowingly beautiful and complex, but the process is incredibly easy! My years of tie-dyeing in the traditional way was turned on its head when I discovered the ice. We soak the garment in soda ash fixative and tie it up just like a "normal" tie-dye, but then, instead of mixing dye powders with water and applying it with bottles, we cover the garment in ice cubes and apply the dye powder directly on top of the cubes! As the ice melts, the professional dyes are diluted and deposited organically, creating insanely cool fissures and shading that we could never achieve with bottles. You'll love how easy it is, and you're guaranteed to want to do it again and again.
