Batik - from start to finish

 Getting the table ready to do batik. I've put cardboard on the table to keep the wax off the table. 

 These are a collection of bottles that I use to make different size circles. 

 Almost completely melted soy wax. I use soy wax because it has no fumes, can be kept melted using a double boiler and it's a renewable resource. 

What the fabric looks like with all the wax circles. I used the piece of fabric that I dyed Ivory. It's a soft, very pale yellow. 

The finished fabric. I used ultra purple because it's a compliment of yellow. This will be a blouse for me when it grows up.
