This baby can shave 145 pounds of ice in an hour...
I had tossed the waxed scarves into the freezer for about 10 minutes to make sure the wax was hard. (it was at least 90+ degrees in my garage!)
I put a layer of shaved ice on the bottom of the tub. This shaver worked WONDERFUL for this.
After I finished with all the ice, I pulled the scarves from the freezer and laid them out on top of the ice.
Then I shaved more ice to cover all of these scarves.
can I say again how much I love this machine!!!
I sprinkled dry dye powder over the ice covered scarves.....
After the ice melts, rinse out the scarves and air dry. When they are dry, you need to iron the wax out of them.
Make a layer on a hard flat surface, one layer of newspaper, then a layer of paper towel.
Lay your scarf on the layer of paper towel
Then layer paper towel, and then newspaper on top of the scarf.
Using a hot iron, move it over the paper layers slowly. You can see how hot the iron is because the newspaper is starting to brown.
When you lift the layer of newspaper you can see the wax absorbed into the paper towel.
This is how the scarf looks after the wax has been ironed out.
After it's been ironed, since I used Soy Wax, I washed it in hot water with Syntharapol in the washer.
Below are the results of my color adventure.
