Favorite Dying Techniques: Iced Dying and Confetti Dying!

I had time to get back to my dye pots over the weekend and couldn't decide which technique to use so I chose a couple of my favorites! The first two photos are iced dyed cotton and the bottom two photos are confetti dyed fabrics. 

Iced Dyed Cotton
I combined orange, violet and green

I combined lavender with gray

Confetti Dyed Cotton
I first shook bronze dye powder and two shades of yellow
over the fabric and added liquid green dye

Confetti Dyed Cotton
I combined dry dye powder with liquid dye. I brought the fabric to a CFAC workshop where I added Dye-Na-Flow dyes for a variation of color
