It seems the snow always melts before I get the chance to snow dye...but not this year!
|Set up with plastic-lined frame, stretched with snow fence. |
One piece of cotton pre-soaked with soda ash solution under the snow fence to catch the melted snow and dyes.
Two pieces of cotton scrunched on top of the snow fence.
|Sprinkling a variety of blues with an old spice bottle: turquoise, cerulean blue, azure blue, grape.|
|Added a strip of extra snow to see what happens if more snow added on top--|
how much more pastel will the colors get?
