‘Cat on the Bed’1994
24" x 18"
Price includes back-lighting
Designed originally for my greetings card range, I have experimented in this picture with dyeing the back of the cloth with grey dye to get the shading in the white pillows. The grey ‘catches’ the parts of the cloth where the wax was cooler as it was put on and hasn’t been able to penetrate. I always work on a light-table so I can see while I am working exactly how the Batik will look when it is finished and back-lit.
The lovely brass bed was one that came from my childhood home.
This piece is currently for sale in my ’50 Years of Batik’ exhibition
