After several months of experimentation (aka playing) with soy wax, I've completed a piece! "Portals" is the first of a series using wax, fiber reactive dye and cotton cloth. . . . This technique keeps generating new design ideas which is why I started a journal. And I don't keep journals. I barely blog but we already know that. .
I used 50 wt. cotton thread in a coppery color to do most of the free-motion stitching- there's also some very dark navy in there. Portals 2 is in the works.
