Ice dyed shirts

I liked the look of some ice dyed shirts that I saw in Pinterest. So using 2 shirts I bought from Dollar Tree and a couple of Tulip dye kits I got ready to dye the shirts.

After getting the shirts wet I started layering ice dye powder and the shirts in my dye pot.

After the shirts were completely layered with ice and dye powder I put a plastic bag over the pot and set it outside until the ice was melted.

I after the ice was melted I took them out of the pot and dried them.

Most of the tutorials I saw for ice dying said that I should use soda ash to hold the color, but I didn’t. Even after forgetting about the shirts outside until they were soaked from rain and washing them the color is still very bright.
