Batik Card Workshop - Happy Holidays!

Watercolor Batik Workshop
Holiday Cards

Last week I hosted a Watercolor Batik Workshop at my home in Colorado Springs, CO where we created twelve holiday cards using some of my designs shown above or the artists could create their own.
It was a cold, snowy Colorado day but the door wreath was in place to greet everyone and Christmas carols were filling the air.
The ladies spent the day applying melted wax to rice paper as a resist and using their watercolors to add color.
The final step is to crinkle the paper and apply dark paint to settle in the cracks for the 'batik look' - always a little nerve wrecking until everything is ironed off and the final piece is revealed!

It was a wonderful day filled with sharing, eating, laughing and creating - it does not get any better than that, especially during the busy holiday season!
