Paintings Using Batik by Diana Fenney

Batik on Mulberry paper and Lokta paper using hot candle wax as a resist with procion dyes (recipe, hot water and salt only). The brilliance of the dyes plus the looseness of the work with hot wax makes the work very immediate and vibrant and the Batik wax has masked the areas Diana intended to keep white, such as the snow and sunlight.  Please note that the zoom images will open in a separate window
