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
