WIP Wednesday...a little late


Yesterday, I went to Rebecca's house to try out making my own batik. Apparently at one time I thought I might be Amish, and I had a surprising amount of solids in my stash. I decided to try out this teal one. Now, all I have managed to do so far is put the wax on it. But hopefully tomorrow I can discharge it and see how it looks. Drawing with wax was completely relaxing. I must have worked for over an hour just playing with it. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will have a plan.

Who need a plan? Apparently NOT you. Your piece looks great. I can't wait to see the "after"

Hey, that's pretty cool. I can't wait to see where this goes.

Faith, Hope & Fish, huh?

Quite a nice piece, there. Will you be able to cut it up and use it?

Plans are overrated when it comes to being free and creative! (*wink*) Just have some fun and see where it leads you!

This sounds like fun--bet it felt good to play for awhile. So you will discharge the unwaxed parts instead of dying them? Please post again as this continues.
