Cindy Peterson's Studio through the Boise School District Community Education Classes.
DD2 and I did 2 pieces collaboratively. This lion is a Cosmetology School Graduation gift for Big Sis/DD1-aka-Guitar Girl who just happens to be a Leo. White is the initial outline (with a painted eye and nose). Then dipped in tan for 40 min. Then the next week, the face was waxed off then dipped in red for 15 min. All the lion was waxed then dipped in black overnight.
This is the giant lion that appeared as a tattoo on on DD1's back when she turned 18. You can see why we thought this was a good plan.
Since there was black dye available, I decided to make a wax stamp out of a hanger. I was really trying to take advantage to the normal curves of the hangar, but I think it looks like a nose.
Clearly, I need a new camera. The real color of this is a dark purple that is nearly black in natural light. The base color is a dark pink.
So, obviously, not only do I love batik fabric, but I really love making batik fabric and paintings. Does this have the potential of getting out of hand? Yea. Duh.
