Batik Class

Last week I had a batik class in my backyard. The weather was perfect, high cloud and a slight breeze. We appreciated the cloud so we didn't get sun burnt and the breeze helped the fabrics to dry so we could get lots of waxings and colouring done. I had the dyes in the wet room so they didn't blow away. We used soy wax, which is so much better for the environment, it doesn't smell or smoke, melts at a lower temperature, and comes out in the washing machine with hot water. So easy and so much fun!





Why not give it a try?

On a recent mental health day, my granddaughter and I did some batik with soy wax. It is sooooo much fun! And even tho I bought the wrong type of wax (from the candle dept--pillar candle formula) it still turned out great.

Great batik samples. It's something I love to do, and there's something really nice about getting messy and playing!
