'Parlour Palm'

10" diameter x 10" high


When creating a Batik, you always start with the waxing of the lightest colour, which in this case was the cream background.  Imagine going in and out of all those leaves - it took me ages!

As with all Batik, if you miss a bit that should have been waxed, once you've dyed it the next colour, you can't go back and fix the mistake.  Colour-wise it was simple, two greens and black but the waxing was certainly a challenge, especially as the same design continues all around the lampshade!
