Commissions In Batik

I love the challenge of working on a commission trying to figure out exactly what the customer wants doing the drawings and coming up with the colours.  A number of years ago I had to work on a large wall hanging for the Notre Dame University Folk Choir  I had to use the choirs logo and get it to fit in a desired size.   


Getting the size in proportion then using a black marker so that I can see the design through the silk

painting the design on with hot wax a slow process

this is just the start

One layer of colour and back to more waxing

The finished hanging in its new home a dramatic piece that I really loved working on
