Soy Wax Class...



Saturday I spent the day leading a class in

Soy Wax Batik



Soy Wax Tools...






Heating up the Soy Wax 

before the students arrived...



After a quick demo showing the students

how to use the tools...


the students were getting down....with the wax!












The Tjanting tool was popular throughout the day...










After waxing....it was time to choose paint:


Pebeo Setacolor Textile Paints






1 part paint to 3 or 4 parts water...












You can see the wax resists the paint...






Found Objects from around the house...






Soy Wax on Fabric......Before Painting






Soy Wax on Fabric.......After Painting






The students will air dry their fabrics at home...






Then heat-set the textile paint the next day...














Soy Wax Batik Surface Design Technique.....FUN!
