Soy Wax Batik.......Part 2


I painted over the fabrics that I

stamped with hot soy wax last week...




I am using Textile Paints...







Let's see where the day takes us...







This is what I have in the paint cupboard today...

Jacquard, Pebeo Setacolor, Dye-Na-Flow








I chose a dark grape purple to cover this pink fabric...







You can see the wax hand shapes 

are resisting the paint







I chose a dark chocolate brown paint 

over this yellow fabric






The brown paint will be a good contrast 

against the yellow fabric.







Brilliant Blue paint over the pale blue fabric...







Another good contrast of colors.







I mixed blue and purple paints for this one...













































































I applied 3 different colors of paint...

Then tipped the board on the side  to help 

the paint run down into the yellow color...







This is the piece after all of the blending...







Again, 3 colors of paint...

Tipped the board on the side to blend the colors...







The black paint was the best contrast 

on this white fabric

with writing in hot soy wax...




24 Fat Quarters painted today...


Time to call it a day.....and clean up






This is the view as I walked out the door of the

Thread Shed....

They will dry tonight.

Tomorrow I will heat set the paint...

Wonderful work! I wish that I could sign up for the class too. The pieces where you blended three colors and then let it run down are my favorite.

Unfortunately I don't live anywhere near you so I cannot take your classes, however I totally would if I did. Your techniques are fascinating! But I was wondering, how do you get the wax off when you're done?

After you heat set the textile paint, you can throw the fabrics on a very HOT washing machine. The wax washes off. You may want to turn the cold water off, so the washing machine only fills with HOT water.
