Summer School - Day Three & Four

Day three and the sun continued to shine. We explored a relatively new product called cold water batik wax.  This looks a little bit like PVA glue and was able to be brushed and stamped onto cotton
Once dry, which was very quick today we painted over the top with procion dyes.

These pieces were steam fixed to both set the colour and melt the wax.
Wednesday afternoon saw everyone painting their own threads to be used in future projects with fabric paints.
Thursday was painted shibori. We used a pole wrapped technique and then applied fabric paints for some stunning results.
Everyone created so many fabulous pieces of work that a longer washing line was needed. This just doesn't show the colours achieved.
In the afternoon we explored the effects of adding fabric paint to a stitched and quilted surface.
