Layering Resists

I've been working with resists for a long time now, although it's only been in the past year or two that I have really experimented with layering the resist techniques. Now, I find it hard to create a cloth without using at least two resists. When looking at the finished pieces, the resist layers may not be evident at first glance, however I feel they add depth that makes the final piece richer and more complex. Below are photos of some of the pieces I have created using multiple resists.

Centered was created with oatmeal, acrylic and print paste resists.

Ancient Wisdom was created with soy wax and acrylic medium resist.

One with Nature was created with soy wax, print paste and dextrin resist.

Awakening was created with flour paste and acrylic medium resist.

Fingerprints was created with flour paste, acrylic and print paste resists.

Seaweed was crated with flour paste, soy wax and acrylic resists.

  1. I LOVE these resist pieces. They have a great deal of depth and the design has resonance. I am especially drawn to the fingerprint resist. Can you come speak to my high school classes?
    Or, better yet, give me a lesson!
