Ice Dyeing with Cleanline Resist and Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED - Congratulations Darcy Berg!

This is my last post for this month on ice dyeing with resists. Another resist that you can use with ice dyeing is Lumi Cleanline. I love using this product when painting on fabric. If you've never used Cleanline, check out my post about it here.

So I tried it with ice dyeing.

You follow the same procedure as when you are ice dyeing with soy wax or Color Magnet. Soda ash soak the fabric and hang to dry. The Cleanline resist is then applied to the dry fabric with whatever tools you like to use including, but not limited to, thermofax screens, wood printing blocks, or potato mashers. Then let the Cleanline dry before ice dyeing.

When completely dry, I scrunched the fabric up and ice dyed it.

Here are the results. With Lumi Cleanline resist, since it is water soluble, you don't get a strong resist due to all of the melted ice water that sits on it, but still gives a nice, almost muted, background.




These are just a few of the resists you can use with ice dyeing. I could see the kitchen resists and even glue working with this technique. If you try any others, I'd love to hear about your results.

As I mentioned in my first post this month that I am working on my online class - Icy Delights. Registration will open in May.


Because a lot of the dyes split or break out to their component colors in ice dyeing it's difficult to buy dyes not knowing how they will look. For my class I've ice dyed 34 different colors so class participants can see which colors they might like best for their projects. I've also included some of my favorite color combos.  But more about the class later.

Let's get to the giveaway.




For my giveaway the winner will receive 4 fat quarters of my favorite ice dyed fabric (and maybe a surprise). You must comment on this blog or my Bloombakecreate blog. The deadline is Friday, May 6 at 8 am CST. I'll be posting the winner at the top of this post.

Good Luck and thanks for reading my posts this month.

  2. Thanks for all these great ideas, Lynda. I will be referring back to these blogs when I get back into dyeing, hopefully. Have have so much supplies lying dormant for several years and I'd better get back into it sometime!

  6. I love the look of these ice dyed fabrics. It's interesting to see how the process changes due to the slow melting of the ice and the dye characteristics.
