Soy Wax Over-Dye......Fabric Reveal


Here are the results of our

Soy Wax  Batik

Play Day last week...



These started out as light colored hand dyes:


This was a light gradient from blue to yellow

stamped with circle sponges

then over dyed dark green.






This is a lavender flour sack towel,

stamped with a hand cut sponge,

over dyed dark purple.






This was a piece I was using for

 a demo in classes.

It has all sorts of soy wax stamping on it.

It started out light peach colored,

then over dyed dark maroon.









I am not certain of the original color,

stamped with a pool noodle,

over dyed dark green.






Not sure who did this one,

very cool.... I like it.






This started out white,

stamped with leaf shaped sponge and circles,

over dyed dark green.






This started out very light blue,

stamped with plastic plumbing pipe,

over dyed dark maroon.








Stared out white,

stamped with circles and squares,

over dyed dark green.






This started out as a yellow hand dye,

stamped with a hand cut oval sponge,

over dyed black.



This is the only piece to survive 

the black dye bath.

All of the other pieces came out nearly all black 

without any resist?






I think this was waxed with a 

natural bristle brush?






White Fabric stamped with pool noodle,

over dyed dark green.








Lavender hand dye,

stamped with wire circles and plumber pipe,

over dyed dark purple.






stamped with potato masher and pool noodles,

over dyed dark purple.






Gradient hand dye yellow to blue,

stamped with sponges, pool noodles 

and plumber pipe,

over dyed dark green.









Light blue hand dye,

stamped with circles,

over dyed dark blue.






Stamped with sponges and circles,

over dyed dark purple.








Light blue hand dye,

stamped with glass bowl and circles,

over dyed dark green.






Light blue hand dye,

stamped with hand cut oval sponge,

over dyed dark blue.






This one has some previous soy wax 

that was over painted,

then soy waxed again,

then over dyed dark green.






Not sure what color this started out,

soy wax stamped with metal circles 

and pool noodles,

over dyed dark green.


We had a FUN day playing with 

hot soy wax and hand dyed fabrics 

that needed more surface design treatments.

Fabulous fabrics!! Love how many different things you can stamp with to get different patterns - who would think to use a potato masher or glass bowl to apply the wax!!??? Can't wait to see what you make with them!
