I'm going to bring home some salty sand from the Outer Banks. Using salt for special effects with dye is a well-known thing. Snow dyeing is also a technique, pouring dye over a pile of snow with the fabric underneath. I'm going to try to combine these two techniques and see what happens. Sprinkle it, pile it, draw designs in it and use it as a "resist", hmmmmm....the possibilities. I love experimenting!
