sample #3

Batik; painted wax onto re-cycled silk, then 'drawn' into ('scrafito') using a compass point. Not very happy with the result, actually, though I like the technique. Like so much of textile techniques, batik is something one needs to practice and practice to get anything like a good result. And batik isn't the top of my preferred list. I'm trying to concentrate on the textile techniques I want to develop, in this C&G module, though there are things I need to include in my samples; such as batik.
