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.
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.
