Dye Candy (=eye candy for dyers)

After doing the rather pale and sombre salt dyeing, I felt I needed something brighter so I dyed some half metres, applying the dye in each case in the same way with one colour like a capital "I" and the other(s) filling in the sides. Top left is Lemon Yellow and Golden yellow; then Lemon Yellow with a dash of Bright Blue bordered by Lemon and Bright Blue. Bottom row: Turquoise/Lemon with Turquoise/Fuchsia; Bordeaux with Scarlet; Kiwi with Dark Green.

These are still batching, so the end results will be for next time.
