Batik


































Yes today is the day! Parents are welcome and much needed for todays batik project. Using paraffin wax (timely supplied by Char - Lydia and Elijah's mom) with colourful wax crayons.  I went out and bought two grills and use little metal muffin tins to melt the waxes. The participants painted designs onto 100% cotton rag from images that I supplied, (mostly fish and butterflies) They crumbled the cloth up and put it in the permanent dye, here they are before the wax is removed.
