The first thing I wanted to do was get some batiked yardage ready. I have some really nice linen already soda soaked and waiting but I thought I would start with about 3 yards of heavy off white cotton I bought at IKEA which I soaked and dried over night.
Nice linen I am saving after the cotton experiments today
This IKEA fabric was 60" wide so I had to stretch it sideways on my printing table. Most of the fabric is hanging down the side onto the floor.
My favorite brush "disappeared" after teaching a class at Fiber College. These were poor substitutes - very thin and wimpy.
Soy wax on cotton.
I really did intend to wear gloves - see!!
Like players waiting to go out on the field.
Sun yellow and Intense blue
Grape and mixing blue
Very light intense blue - lots of print paste but light on the dye - for the sky
Golden yellow and Intense blue (really lovely)
Batching in my kitchen
Thicken dye from the plastic knives. Just beautiful colors
