Batik Time

I'm taking a batik class this month. I love learning new skills and I don't have much experience with fiber arts.  So i'm making a floral design, of course!


Step One - block out what stays white in wax.
Step Two - paint on the red dye for my image.














Step Three- Dip it in yellow to get some oranges, and to prepare for greens to come!

Here are some shots of other work happening in the class. It's a slow process, but it creates a beautiful result. I'll post more when we're done!
