Extensive cracking of the wax is used a lot in this design. The bark of the trees and the lively background is made by screwing up the cloth between the brown and the black dyeing and really working the dyes into the cracks. It gives a really natural looking bark effect. Cracking the background and working brown and black into the cracks, creates the twigs.
