I know... it looks pretty gaudy awful right now, but I wanted to start off with some really eye-popping bright colors to start with. Then when I stamp and overdye, I'll have some bright spots in a darker background... at least, that's the plan! No, Melly... I did not thicken the dyes! I wanted them to run together nicely... and if anyone out there knows of a source for wood block stamps that can be used to batik with, please let me know! I'm sure I could make some, but it would be so much simpler if I could just find some!
Meanwhile, stay tuned... more pix to follow!
