So I am a big fan of this faux batik technique and this is my newest exploration in it.  I painted three different colours, yellow, Bright orange and raw sienna in acrylic to get the hair pattern the way I wanted it and then red for the flower.  I like this lady although I wish i made her colour patterning slightly less "jokerish". I made her for a swap.
 


I think I would like to do more experiments with this technique and I have really been thinking about way super abstract stuff and how it might turn out with this technique... I have a feeling my next adventure might be way more "arty"...



Still curious? Check out my blogorama...
