Have you ever heard of the “ice” tie dye method? Recently a friend mentioned it to me and I want to share with you my first experience with testing out this method! I had several LuLaRoe items that were 3 years or so old from when I first started purchasing LuLaRoe as a customer. I wanted to revive this items and love the “watercolor” tie dye look which apparently comes from the Ice Tie Dye Method.
Tie Dye with Ice
- Prep your items and workspace Ice tie dye is super messy!
- Your items need to have a high percentage of cotton and even then not every blend if not 100% cotton or white will actually take- I learned this the hard way.
- Wet your items in a soda ash solution, ring out the excess water so they are damp but not soaking.
- Sprial them or design them how you wish and rubber band or string them.
- Place on top of a cooling rack over a pan to catch drippings.
- Lay ice on top of garment.
- Put color over garment/ice
- Let sit for 6-8 hours
- Open up and look at what you made!
- Rinse out garment until water is clear.
- Wash in washing machine by its self on hot water to set dye.
