Hands deep in dye today to try out some wax resist batik. I loved this technique, but again found it difficult to get my head round the outcome of the layering of resist, dye combination 1, then resist again, then dye combination 2.
I think my initial marks were too fine, but it’s all about trying these techniques out, and learning from experiments. This green was supposed to be a subtly shaded turquoise blue.
Also such a great discussion at the beginning of the class about the history of colour and dyes. I got the first book from the Morley library and have ordered the second one through our local library. So much mental stimulation.
