Indian Corn - Haboti Silk - Acid Dyes - 1994/95 I made these panels in a beginning dye class I took with Priscilla Sage (I'm thinking around 1994 now will have to check my old class notes).
Batik Panel - Acid Dyes
I've yet to get around to fninshing these pieces, I've been busy excavating my studio closet and found them a little bit ago. I'm thinking they need to be encrusted with stitching and beading!

I need to reheat the surface, a pint sized customer (5 year old) tried to pick the wax off the surface, she managed to scratch it but other than that the surface was hard enough to twart her endeavors.

Line going across the fabric became very pronounced once I started applying the Shiva Paintstiks (oil bars) to the surface. Click on the pic to see the line better. Suggestions on getting rid of it???
The culprit that caused the line, masking tape on the vinyl, someday I'll learn to look at my surface and make sure there's no tape attached! You can see the line going directly across the fabric, follows the tape beautifully.
Now the twenty million dollar question, do I incorporate the line some how or start over? The line travels across the top third of the apple.
Purple number one, I'm thinking of mixing the next batch of purple with some burnt umber and red. I was hoping to finish this piece tonight, we'll see come 8pm I have some serious relaxation planned, my favorite show Fringe is on tonight.
First layer of paint is down only 6 more colors to go to make it look reasonably realistic. This is Apple No. one in a series of three large apples.
