Soy Wax.....Over Dye



The Art Sisters are @ the Quilt Palace



We have gathered up our favorite 

soy wax tools







Tools of the Trade








The Soy Wax is heating up...













We are stamping hot soy wax on

light hand dyed fabrics




 We are using big under-the-bed boxes

for the dye baths:


5 Dark Dye Baths:

Black, Blue, Purple, Green, Red







MX Fiber Reactive Dye Concentrates



Below are examples of light handyes

that I stamped with hot soy wax

then over-dyed darker:

have been processed...

LuAnn, This is something else I love to do and just haven't done in awhile. I rarely soy wax over previously dyed fabric - yes, whimpy! I can't wait to see the results.

You are quite organized with your set up, which I totally respect and agree with! What great pieces and looks like everyone had a grand time and produced some cool pieces!
