Update on the dye test

Well, I got interested in the design of the piece I posted below where I was testing dyes, and decided to play around a little. I used soy wax batik to create barriers to block the red and brown dyes I used on the next step. I don't think I'm done with this piece yet, but here's where it's at now:

I'm still seeing trees on a lake, but now I have a fiery sunset in the background and foliage in the foreground. Next step will be to wax off the sky and lake, and overdye the trees with green. Fun!
