I went to a workshop this Friday on resist dyeing. Taught by the brilliant Faiqah Abrahams, it was a great deal of fun.  I tried out most of the techniques taught - folding, tie-dyeing, painting the wax, stamping, bleaching and using the tjanting tool. Here are a few of my efforts:

Anairam! Those pieces are superb. You have a real talent for texture and fabric work. I like them all, but if I had to choose I'd go for the second to last one. Love the designs and love the blues and purple colors.

Your batik is all lovely. One of them looks like tumbling frogs. I did batik many years ago and really loved the smell of the hot wax!
