Like in any batik project, you need to apply hot soy wax to your fabric using whatever tools you have.
This is an antique potato masher my friend Marcella gave me. It is definitely one of my favorites.
The pieces above and below are done with a ordinary bore's hair paint brush. All of these pieces are done on pre-soaked (soda ash) cotton.
Next I make up my thickened dye and get out the old credit cards. These are unused gift cards (although who wouldn't use a Godiva gift card??)
Here I am scraping on the thickened dye with the card.
I did this one on one side only because it was done with a tjanting tool in handwriting.
Another great winter batiking project. Hope you give this a try!
