Everything at hand? Then you’re ready to go.

Fold the cushion cover like an accordion and tie it off with rubber bands at even intervals.

Now clamp the tied cover between two cardboard strips or rails and fix them with rubber bands as well.

Place in the centre of a grid over a bowl and cover with ice cubes. Now cut open the colour bag corn-yellow and sprinkle the colour on the ice cubes. Leave gaps for the second colour.

The poppy-red textile dye is then sprinkled into these gaps. This is how the suggested check pattern on the cushions is created later.

Now you need to be a little patient. Leave your cushion to rest like this for 24 hours.

Then rinse the pillow, still tied, under running water until the water remains clear.

Now add the colour fixer to 8 litres of cold water and place the set pillowcase in it.

The cushion remains in the fixing bath for 15 minutes and is moved in between. Then rinse well.

The cool ice batik cushion cover is ready.

Have fun dyeing!

The result will make you melt
