Ice dying

I had read a lot about ice dying on Pinterest so decided to have a go myself.  I had some white cotton that had been washed in terrac to remove all sizing so I wet a piece and stuffed it in an AG (mason) jar.  Then I filled the jar with ice ( scammed from Robin's stash to go fishing).  On top of that I dripped a little bit of fuschia coloured dye and a little bit of midnight blue dye.  Then I left it to its own devices until the ice had melted.  I added a little bit of soda ash water and left it for about half an hour and then tipped out the water and washed the fabric well.  Hardly any rediue dye came out and the reults were amazing.
