What has been holding me back is that I was hoping to find a used electric frying pan at the thrift shop to melt the wax. No such luck, but a friend recently gifted me one, so I have done a very little experimenting.
Just in case you don't know what a resist is, it is something applied to a fabric that will keep the dye or paint you are applying from those resist areas.
These don't look very exciting, but I used some snow dyed fabrics and then applied the wax with kitchen utensils. Basically you dip whatever you are using into the hot wax, then apply it to the fabric. You have to wait an hour or so for the wax to totally harden. When it is hard you brush on your thickened dyes, another new process for me.
Here you can easily see what kitchen implements I used. The circles are from a drinking glass. I used blue as my dye because I had some left over from my Fiber Fall. I have so much to learn. I will use a bright fabric as my background and some different tools for applying the wax.
My fiber art group is going to have a play date at one member's unfinished basement this Friday where we can do messy things. This is what I want to play with.
