Trying my hand at batiks.

Made some stamps for doing batiks. Got to use TJay's scroll saw. Cool. Cut out the pieces and used Gorilla Glue to attach the pieces-parts to a backing. Clamped them and waited an hour.

Endless possibilities for making stamps with power tools...

Made some other stamps after drawing a design on wood and pounding nails. Also endless possibilities...

I'll dye these again this evening. The dark places are where the wax is stamped.

I found that each time I started with a different stamp, I had to hold it in the wax for a little bit, to warm up the tool too.

This will be cool...I hope.

Waves, fishies and bubbles. The fabric was textured too, which adds something extra to this one. I think it needs more waxing, before I dye it.
I'll stamp this one again, after the next dye bath.

And the potato masher made as awesome design!
