FEEDBACK FRIDAY: Ice Dyeing with Cara Marie Piazza - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
What kind of screen?
Terri Van Sleuwen
Do you ever use this technique on linen or wool?
Where is your studio?
This looks SO FUN! Can you use fresh flowers or do they need to be frozen?
Hi - how would do this with wool? Thanks!
what is the process with snow?
Terri Van Sleuwen
Have you even tried putting rusty bits in the bundle?
do you dye with icedye all year round
So Good! When you make your ice cubes, do you pour hot water over the dye material? Or do you just use tap water?
When you fold the fabric, where do you place the dyestuffs and ice?
have you worked with wool yarn or wool fabric
When you tie dye do you use the product to tie to get the color rings?
how long do you leave fabric under ice?
did you make silk masks? are they easy to breath through?
Maria Anna Parolin
have you tried this technique on paper?
“Folk method” I LOVE IT!!! Stealing this for my research methodology!
can I duye fo fiber ;thaty is onlyu carded
Thank you!! but it is very clear actually!
Do sprinkle the dye on top of the ice/snow or underneath?
where do you get your blank shirts?
Is there a difference between using extra or actual flowers (eg marigold)?
Hi. How do you manage to get good coverage on both sides of a pre-made garment (like a T-shirt)?
water soluble colorants
Have you re-ice dyed if you aren't happy with the first outcome?
Hi Cara! What did you say about rusty nails with ice cubes in the beginning?…I missed it
can you mordant after you’ve stitched as in shibori. leaving the stitching in.
Wow, what a fascinating technique :) thank you so much for sharing it with us. Could you please explain a lit bit more of the process? So, I can put a piece of fabric in a bucket and then randomly put ice cubs on the fabric and let them melt?
Thank you for sharing! Love your work. What has been your favorite designer collaboration? And what was your largest production run?
When’s your next workshop?
How do you determine the amount of dye matter to put into your ice cube mixture? Random?
I do go leaves with ice in the blender makes great application on fabric.and cubes. why do you think indigo would not work.
This is so cool! I have done with synthetic dyes but wasn’t sure how to do it with natural dyes! Thank you!!!!
more likely frozen to break down the cellwalls
typo Fresh indigo leaves
Does the speed that the ice melts affect the results? Ie., will the faster melting time in the summer create a less concentrated color, more, neither?
Should ice-dyed pieces only be washed cold?
I haven’t yet — but I will!
The best tap water!
Freezing ruptures the cells making the colorants run out onto substrate quickly. Unfrozen, the flowers will need chopping or mashing to rupture cells.
i use an old window screen
When I was in the UK there was some chlorine in the tap water, that was not helpful. So a little warning for that!
can you use sea water?
The mask are lovely!
If you’re willing to buy plastic things, H-Mart sells some plastic tubs with strainer tops that fit on top of the tub - several different sizes - at least they did a few years ago - hopefully they still have them. But they work perfectly.
What’s the foundation? I didn’t catch that
Separate dye kitchen - that’s the dream!
Do you re-mordant when you re-dye?
It would be interesting to leave pieces outside on snow for the full duration of winter
I have used rusted objects on handmade paper as it was drying....you can somewhat see the object's shape after the paper has been pressed & dried.
great with kids
Do onion skins work?
Have you ever put the whole thing in a cooler to slow the process?
Can you talk a little more about cochineal in ice dyeing? Whole, ground etc.
What were the panties dyed with?
I love your vibe and energy!!!
Maybe indigo powder mixed into soymik and frozen? Melted onto soy milk treated fabric?
in the summer maybe you can combine ice dying with solar dying!
yes! They do work! It takes a long time to get the color but they make amazing confetti marks
red onion skins
Frozen sea water is great to work with!
Ohh I live by the sea, would have a go at sea water :) exciting
what did you say about linen
can I dye roving? Alpaca?
I can't help asking, how to wash the panties?
Do you have a team to help you execute your production projects?
Who are the dyers on Instagram?
wasn't cochineal used for red jello and many food colorings before synthetics? might want to grind up for consistency, but grinder could still be used in the kitchen, right?
Agnes Anna Szabo
loved the presentation! thanks so much! would love to try this technique. I live in Puerto Rico so definitely the melting process will be faster..have you tried spirulina powder?
Cochineal is a common food dye, so yes, probably won’t result in death
Thank you, Cara! Great presentation.
Thank you, that was incredible!
I’ve done lots of experiments on paper and put gum arabic in the ice cube before freezing x
M Deane Bowers
Thanks so much for a very interesting presentation!
thank you so much
any flowers that you would expect to produce color that do not??
What is your preferred Ph neutral soap? Thanks!
some hybrid roses doesn’t work
I wonder if Alpaca and Wool would need opening the fibres with some heath??
synthropol is pH neutral
If ice dyeing your personal prefered technique?
Inspired - will be scrounging for snow in the shade. Thank you all
can you add dried flowers to the ice cubes?
Can you use glycerine soap??
you can scrounge from arenas for snow...I'm Canadian, lots of arenas!
How about St John’s Wort. It turns red when rubbed from Jeanne
the zero of ecover hasn't citric parfum so is extra safe I think
