I made some batik scarves yesterday. I used soy wax on these, but am wondering if flour paste would be good to use. I may have to try it, but if anyone reading this has any thoughts about it, let me know in the comment section. I do like the crackly lines.
I am also trying out some new types of silk from what I have worked on in the past. I really love the flat crepe, the silk satin and the silk charmeuse. I think the charmeuse is basically silk satin with a crepe backing on it, thereby making it a heavier scarf. So this has been an interesting learning experience. Tomorrow I will be putting these scarves out at the artisan’s festival. I am always interested in customer response when I have something different to offer at shows.
