Soy Wax......Class Prep


The table is set for.....FUN!



I am soy waxing fabric today...












I mainly stamp with.....Found Objects:












Potato Mashers......always a favorite





Hand Cut Sponges.....also a favorite




This fabric was stamped with a hand cut sponge

then painted over with turquoise textile paint...





This is what it looks like after it is

heat set with an iron...

It needs to go in a HOT washing machine next.





This was also stamped with a hand cut sponge





I use diluted textile paints





I used a box fan to dry 

the waxed and painted fabrics...

it takes about an hour for them to dry.





This was my favorite piece of the day...





This will definitely end up in one of my quilts





It was a great day of soy waxing...

I am all ready for class on Thursday!

  3. I really want to learn how to do this!! You have some fabulous fabrics! I'll have to wait until I get home where I can hang the fabrics on the clothes line to dry...I'll have to do the dyeing and everything outside under the trees on the lawn!
