Patterns in Nature – Snow Dyes

February 6, 2012

June Steegstra walked into the studio this week with a fantastic array of brilliant colors on dyed fabric she dyed with Procion Mx  and snow.  Immediately I had them spread all over the studio and took many photographs of the color displays. Very unusual patterns develop when snow is packed around the fabric and dye is poured over it. This may be a little difficult to replicate in Arizona or Hawaii but maybe you can do similar things with crushed ice in a hot climate.    What do you think?  Gail

    We had an abundance of powdery snow last winter, and I was able to snow dye for the first time. It’s great fun and always a treat to see how it turns out!

    What a beautiful array of color. Each one is a very pleasing abstract painting! Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful, vibrant colors! June did a fabulous job and it’s fun that she tried dying in the recent snow. Thank you for sharing this dye session with us!

    We always have plenty of snow but I’ve never managed to do any snow dyeing. It’s beautiful!
