Samantha Verrone
47:59
Hi Cara! What did you say about rusty nails with ice cubes in the beginning?…I missed it
Helen Kennedy
48:32
can you mordant after you’ve stitched as in shibori. leaving the stitching in.
Margarida Vasconcelos
48:32
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?
Stephanie Stimmler
48:42
Thank you for sharing! Love your work. What has been your favorite designer collaboration? And what was your largest production run?
Natalie Love
49:23
When’s your next workshop?
lauren dyer
51:33
How do you determine the amount of dye matter to put into your ice cube mixture? Random?
Renee Robin
51:35
I do go leaves with ice in the blender makes great application on fabric.and cubes. why do you think indigo would not work.
Joni Zimmerman
52:02
This is so cool! I have done with synthetic dyes but wasn’t sure how to do it with natural dyes! Thank you!!!!
Adrienn Gorgenyi
52:09
more likely frozen to break down the cellwalls
Renee Robin
52:17
typo Fresh indigo leaves
Amy Oliveira
52:39
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?
Laura Sullivan
53:04
Should ice-dyed pieces only be washed cold?
Samantha Verrone
53:13
I haven’t yet — but I will!
Lauren Jones
53:16
The best tap water!
Cecile Lewis
53:37
Freezing ruptures the cells making the colorants run out onto substrate quickly. Unfrozen, the flowers will need chopping or mashing to rupture cells.
Helen Kennedy
54:19
i use an old window screen
Marijke Bongers
54:49
When I was in the UK there was some chlorine in the tap water, that was not helpful. So a little warning for that!
Frances pinney
55:27
can you use sea water?
Marijke Bongers
55:39
The mask are lovely!
Joni Zimmerman
56:21
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.
Natalie Love
57:09
What’s the foundation? I didn’t catch that
Samantha Verrone
59:31
Separate dye kitchen - that’s the dream!
Sheila Kirschenbaum
59:34
Do you re-mordant when you re-dye?
Laura Sullivan
59:46
It would be interesting to leave pieces outside on snow for the full duration of winter
Ruth Crump
59:52
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.
Helen Kennedy
01:00:49
great with kids
Aimee Smythe
01:01:02
Do onion skins work?
Lisa Powley
01:01:22
Have you ever put the whole thing in a cooler to slow the process?
Leanne Taylor
01:01:44
Can you talk a little more about cochineal in ice dyeing? Whole, ground etc.
Samantha Verrone
01:02:46
What were the panties dyed with?
Marijke Bongers
01:03:44
I love your vibe and energy!!!
Kate Ellis
01:06:20
YES!
lauren dyer
01:06:26
Maybe indigo powder mixed into soymik and frozen? Melted onto soy milk treated fabric?
Janice Wale
01:07:52
in the summer maybe you can combine ice dying with solar dying!
Erica Lubetsky
01:08:00
yes! They do work! It takes a long time to get the color but they make amazing confetti marks

01:08:28
red onion skins

Do you have a team to help you execute your production projects?
Suzanne Watzman
01:11:06
Who are the dyers on Instagram?
michelle gannes
01:11:21
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
01:11:24
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?
Laura Sullivan
01:12:01
Cochineal is a common food dye, so yes, probably won’t result in death
Shari Syrkett
01:12:04
Thank you, Cara! Great presentation.
Heather Giroux
01:12:19

01:13:49
