Fabric Wax Resist - A Technique - Material Mondays


Have you tried a wax resist technique on fabric?  In week 20 of Material Mondays I share one of the techniques that I use to create the designs on my fabric.

Dyeing your own fabric is a great way to create your own designs, and the fabric can either be used as a whole or cut up and used in smaller projects.

I start out with an image loosely sketched on the fabric, I usually do a combination of faces and patterns

The next step is to add the wax either on the lines you have drawn or in-between the lines which will create varying patterns.

I combine a selection of dyes together to get the color that I want, you can do swatches so that you are able to recreate the colors when needed.

Once dried the wax is removed.  I use an iron and place paper over the fabric.  It is a great way to apply color and pattern to some of the fabrics that you may have, and you can experiment and see what effects that you are able to create.

Textile and Mixed Media Reflections in the Studio

Come and join me in the studio where I look back on my textile creative journey.  It is a good idea to look at the steps you have taken, see what has worked, why you do what you do and where you want to go.

I have been loving creating with fabric and stitching, and whilst I have not yet really been making my own clothes, I love creating the wall hangings and painting on the fabric, selecting beads and all that goes into creating the pieces.

You can see how this piece is doing in the latest video

If you are interested in starting creating using textiles, you can find some ideas on my Amazon Sewing ideas board HERE

Material Mondays - Week 17 - Adding Beading to the Stitched Project

For Material Mondays this week we are going to be adding beading to our project. This piece is nearing its completion and you get an idea what goes into creating a piece like this.

It goes through many stages and the process part of it is really enjoyable.

The project has to go through the many stages as part of the process and you should take your time and really enjoy it. I like to let the piece sit for a couple of days. You can check out the supplies list on my Amazon Store Here.

This is what it looked like previously, you can see the progress
