2018 was a year of exploration. Which has only wet my appetite for more.
For the fun of it I’m posting the progression of steps of dye and wax with these batiks. Because I start with the lightest colors first, building gradually darker dyes thru many steps ( these images depict only the more noticeable ones) It’s almost like these batiks emerged gradually onto the cotton from a fog.
Happy new year everyone! I’m excited to see where 2019 leads! I do have a few plans in place, one is to experiment with batik and indigo. I’m really looking forward to this side path. Indigo stands up to light, and I will be able to ditch the frames to explore other display methods. My mind is already spinning….
