We were 'dying' to try it!

Today we tried two different types of wax-resist; we created one with wax crayons and the other with hot wax.

 

Using the crayons we created African patterns onto paper, we then brushed over coloured ink, the ink resisted taking hold on to the wax. We then crumpled up our paper and wet it to give it an aged effect.

We then melted wax pellets and used a special wax tool to draw an African image onto fabric, this acted in the same way as the crayon- resisting the ink. We produced a stunning wall-hanging!
