Earlier this week I played with hot Soy Wax...

I was having such a great time that I
forgot to take pictures of my progress...
At this stage of the process:
The fabrics have been stamped with hot wax.
I used different kitchen gadgets as stamps.
Then I watered down textile paint and
painted over the entire piece of fabric.
The wax acted as a resist.
The paint did not absorb where the wax was stamped.
After the paint was dry...
I placed parchment paper on top of the fabric and
heat set the textile paint.
This also removed most of the soy wax from the fabric.
Then I placed the ironed fabrics in the
washing machine set on HOT wash.
Here they are drying on the clothesline today:
This was a sampler I created to test out all of
the kitchen gadgets,
to determine which worked best for hot wax stamping
The soy wax worked great as a resist...
The waxed areas remain white like the original
color of the fabric.
I think I will go in again and stamp these same fabrics
with hot wax, paint them, and see what I get.
Also, I plan to stamp hot wax on commerical fabrics, then the waxed area will have some color other than white.
