Must say, I still like traditional batik using paraffin & beeswax more, except for the hassle of removing the wax. Soy wax washes out in hot soapy water but because it is water soluble, the paint or dye tends to leach through and you don’t get such a clear result – also you can’t put it in a dye bath. However, I’ll keep experimenting with it.
Yesterday I took my finished quilt to be professionally photographed so I can enter Stitched & Bound. Another first – pat on the back for me – getting it done this time! I’m quite happy with the way it turned out but we’ll see if the judges like it.
I’m off to Japan next Friday and there’s lots to do before that, so may not blog until I return on the 5th May.
