Probably the hardest part of working with wax is the removal of it. Years ago I tried batik and swore never to do it again because of that reason. I was using the traditional set up of part parafin and part beeswax. Beeswax is too soft and won't crackle; parafin is too hard and crackles too much, so a mix of the 2 works best. I decided to give it another try after reading Rayna Gillman's book which devotes many pages to the use of soy wax. It's a little more user friendly and easily removed from fabric.
To remove, lay newsprint over the top and underneath; use a a hot iron which immediately melts the wax which is absorbed into the paper.
My daughter is coming this weekend with my granddaughter and then we caravan back to Atlanta for Thanksgiving. It will be a whirlwind of a week.
Til next time...
