Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist »
Type of item: Home Decor
Pima cotton, Dharma dye #75 - Safari Gray, potato masher
What was your inspiration?
This class & I love the look of batiks
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try to get a potato masher that is level on the bottom! Although I really don't mind the missing parts - makes it interesting.
I obviously need to learn how to control the drips better! lol
The wider lines are where I tried wiggling the masher into the fabric - not a great idea
Besides when it's cut up in quilt pieces the wider lines and drips won't be as noticeable.
The wax wasn't too difficult to remove (at least on this fat quarter)
I will definitely be doing more of this.
My electric wok worked just fine to melt the wax but a electric fry pan would probably be better because of the flat bottom.
