1  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / everybody sympathizes with a sad cheerleader... on: March 30, 2007 08:00:03 PM
i made this batik of my sister in my fibers class..

i'm not really sure why i chose to do this picture, because she was actually crying when it was taken.. because i accidently hurt her head when i was doing her hair..

actually, know that i think about it, it probably had more to with the fact that she had only gotten 4 hours of sleep the night before..

oh well.

Holy moly those are so beautiful.  What kind of wax do you use?  Anything special?  I would love a tutorial, or to be directed to one!  I need to try this!

i think we use a mixture of parafin and beeswax...but i'm not 100% sure. i'll ask my teacher..but i'll have to wait a while, because next week is spring break..yay!!

as for a tutorial...i'm not really sure if i could make one, because i do this at school and..well..i don't know. but i've really come to enjoy this technique, and i've been thinking about getting everything i need to do this at home.  when i do, i'll try to put together a tutorial, but it might be a while..

wow those are gorgeous!!! how did you do them?

you put melted wax where you want the fabric to stay white, then you put ye on and put wax over all the different colors so they don't bleed.. then when it's finnished you iron it to get the wax off.

so, i did these batiks in my fibers class, and i must say i'm rather proud of them.

the first one was just a little one so we could get used to the process.

my second one was twice as big, but went a lot faster because there wern't as many small spaces...

well, i worked on it every day in class for about 5 and a half weeks...

i'm not really sure what the type of loom was called..but it was basically a piece of cardboard with slits cut 1/4 inch apart on the sides with the warp threads going between the slits...

you can kind of see what i'm talking about in this..
