The fabric ice dyeing results were certainly not wimpy or pastels. I do love bright color. The pieces were about 22 x 21. I did not know how certain folding techniques would work, so I did not go larger. I am so surprised how clear and clean the colors look even though the melted ice water looked pretty mucky. I will show the kids' shirt results on the next post. I think I would like to try bigger pieces next and learn some more folding techniques.
