Here are my steamed results from yesterday's waxing and dyeing session.
I am showing them in the order in which I posted them prior to steaming in yesterday's post. Like I said, I learned a lot while playing with this technique. The above piece almost looks 3 dimensional, doesn't it?
Below is the first piece that I 'painted' with the hot wax and Procion MX dyes (the photo above is the second piece that I worked on). I had no design plan - can you tell? LOL - when I started the piece below.
Here is the third piece, and I was simply doodling and trying different concentrations of dye powder in the hot wax.
I'm impressed with the vibrant color (hence the name of the dvd!) that you get with this technique, and I can see instances where this will be of great value. I've done several more pieces but can't show them here now, as they are for my class. I hope to tweak my process next week and share more results.
Thanks for stopping by!
