With time and experimentation (and unpleasant surprises!) I eventually became convinced that I wanted a gallery of sample swatches, so that I could see how different dyes would split during ice dyeing. The best way to use this gallery is to get hints of what colors you can expect to see in your finished piece, after using a particular dye, and how spotty the colors might be. Since you probably aren’t dyeing your piece in the same way I dyed my sample, you probably won’t get the same patterns — but hopefully this can help you avoid some of those unpleasant color surprises!
