    So I know that some people are tired of the snow, but I was very thankful yesterday for a last minute snowfall. It gave me the chance to try out snow dyeing again. I had tried it a couple of weeks ago, and was not happy with the results, and was hoping to get another chance at it! I had read some of the blogs that were linked here before, and I didn't have time to order dyes from Dharma Trading, so I went to WallyWorld and Meijer and checked out their selection of RIT dyes and used those instead. I know these aren't the greatest pictures, it's still kind of gray and drab here, was hoping for some sunshine so you could see the colors better. :)

    This was with fuschia, royal blue and a little bit of navy

    Looks like it came out pretty good. I had never heard of that until a post on here a few weeks ago. Our snow was gone or dirty by then!

    One more reason to love winter! Fabulous idea! I hope I remember this next winter. No snow here in Kzoo, should have gone to our cottage in Houghton Lake!

    if you love snow dyeing then try shaving cream dyeing. It is so much fun and you don't have to put up with snow. :)

    I have never heard of snow dyeing. What is it and how does it work? I am very interested in trying this method out.

    Looks like you could move to a place with snow 9 months of the year and create your own Batiks. Lovely.

    Love the colors and dye results of the first 3 photos best but they are all wonderful! You saved lots of money by not having to order online. I can see why you'd like to 'play' with snow some more, LOL

    You are fortunate to be able to try snow dyeing .. something positive about having lots of that white cold stuff around.

    I would love to try it but don't get much snow here in the high desert of CA.
