There had been this idea rattling around in my brain and I wanted to give it a try. The technique itself is not new. Soy wax resist. But I wanted to use it in a new way...for me at least. I had this geode looking effect in my head.
I have done soy wax before with stamps and brushing it on but then I just dyed the whole fabric and
it was cool but not as controlled as I've been thinking about. I have done silk scarves with soy wax resist the same way...mostly with stamps.
Now I wanted to be able to use paint and have more control over where the color went.
I started with a piece of my own hand-dyed cotton. Got out my soy wax and used a tjanting with the larger opening to apply the wax to the fabric in circles of various sizes.
