Snow Dyeing

I have been snow dyeing in my studio today. 

I soaked a vintage table cloth in soda ash and froze it.  Then I took it to the sink at my studio and packed snow on top of the cloth.  I used black cherry dye and then did another batch of snow and poured some fuscia and more black cherry on the snow.  As the snow melts, it should make some interesting patterns in the cloth. 

I left the sink stopper open so that the water will drain.  This is a studio sink, not a kitchen sink.  It is not a sink used for food preparation.
