More Batik

Here are a few more pictures from my batik workshop last weekend. This piece evolved into my favourite one. I began by stamping a simple design into white fabric, I added wax in a design that reminded me of hazel trees. I painted yellow and orange dye, added more wax and then moved into fushia and purple. Another wax and then more colour. My final step was to stamp a gold circle over the wax. When I removed the wax, the circle seems to float behind the trees. I'm happy and have plans to use the fabric in a small art quilt.

Susan, Your fabric is beautiful: all you need to do is frame it!

Love the batik fabric. The results always make me want to try it, but I can't actually see myself doing all the steps.
I have tried the stamping and yours are great.
Thanks for sharing.
