16" x 12" including frame
I had great fun with the setting for this cat, cracking the wax to let in the dark colours in for the branch. To get the texture I want, I screw up the cloth into a ball. The wax cracks, creases and quite often falls off altogether. Before dyeing it, I must repair cracks that I don’t want on the cat itself. The overlapping leaves are done with overlapping brush strokes of hot wax, then a darker colour dyed on the back of the cloth.
