Soy Wax results and latest Pelican

The wax is out, the colors stayed in.  I'm really pleased with this experiment.  I've created more interfacing screens that have been painted with acrylic.  I have to dunk them into really hot water to removed the wax, then I'll screen print them.

"Flying Pelican" is completed.

Oh, your batiks are wonderful....but so is your pelican! Is it okay to covet them all?

Oh, Marty, you've given me a laugh. I'm enjoying the batiking (is that a word?) a lot. I think I am fortunate to have my first experiments turn out so good! Only makes me want to wax some more.

Vicki and Mary, thanks for visiting.
