Batik Tulips~Completed



Ta Da! It's finally done. Last night I removed all the tape and finished the centers of the tulips. Today I looked at it and thought I could've done a better job on the tulip in the lower left corner so I retaped a few areas and applied another light wash. I got some very nice bleeds on the tulip and the background and thoroughly enjoyed this process. I would definitely try this again. It's a bit tedious applying the tape but more fun than a chore. Kudos to Sandy Maudlin for creating this technique.

I love your new word, Maggie.:) I make my own words up often. I was actually surprised it turned out so well. Glad, too.

What fun, Billie! See now why I had not found stages, had opened from my own blog following and just got one update at a time. Have to open entire blog to see each stage listed together! ('')

I'd love to see what you do with this technique, Vera. *hint, hint* I'll bet you could come up with something really spectacular.

Billie Crain said...

Thanks, Patty.:) I'd like to try this again on a larger scale. I've read that different masking tapes produce different results so I need to experiment further.
