Inspiring Batik

Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion is just one of a seeming 100 magazines that I have a subscription to. I love their features on artist’s studios and the way they focus on the artists themselves and what inspires them. This Batik inspiration actually comes from follow up on an ad that showed some really unique looking fabric. Kind of wall finish-y, which always is cause for a second look.

Batik Inspiration

Go to Robert Kaufman Fabrics for an online tour or the Lunn Studios batik process. You can see how they make their metal presses for transferring the wax resist to the fabric.

    Home Companion is one of my favorites also. It was there that I discovered Flights of fancie boutique, a lovely websight that offers many items of interest for mixed media artists. http://www.flightsoffancieboutique.com
