Batik samples

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It was a lot of fun trying out different tools to see what marks they made. My favorite was the lines I cut in the potato stamp. Most of these colors are not ones I would choose on my own but I love how they all turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I couldn't get the pewter or chartreuse to give me decent colors - it kept coming out way too dark. I finally mixed the color in a jar and then added it to the dye pot a little at a time until I got shades I was happy with.

What you will need

  • Pima cotton
  • fiber reactive dyes
  • assorted stamps
