More wax batiks, different wording



All of the ones above are labeled Hollandais.
The next 2 (above) are ABC Guaranteed English Wax.

The next 3 (above) are Dutch Wax like the ones I have shown in previous posts.

This one is slightly different wording, Veritable Wax Holland.


There are a few more pieces but not as interesting as all of these have been.  I have some ideas now how to use some of these so I will start cutting soon.

Great post! Love all the different designs. I will definitely be posting my African fabrics tomorrow. I also will have two books that I use for inspiration with these fabrics. They might help you in your decision making process. Thank you for sharing.

All of them are luscious! Umm, ummm! Especially the starfishes and the birds on blue and gold.
Can't wait to see what you do with these.

Like ' Window Shopping' on the 'Rodeo' Drive seeing all of your elegant fabrics. Did you bring in those fabrics when you had your shop ? The detail of each piece has a creative 'personality' of its own.

Thanks for the fun show. J~MT

Can't wait to see what emerges under your expert hands. They are gorgeous. I'm still learning about batiks. My next show quilt will have quite a few so I'll be watching :).

Beautiful fabrics. I would be hard pressed to cut them up. You are such a brave soul. Beautiful blossoms, too.

Stunning batiks Wanda- You have the most beautiful fabrics in your collection.
They remind of some African fabrics out there. I have some clothing that has some of the distinct imprinting. The clothes were made here with Bali fabrics and I love them all. The company is no longer in business but my summer wardrobe remains these wonderful sun dresses. I love the rich colors and patterns.
Regards,
Anna

Hi Wanda,
Thanks for showing your collection of wax batiks.They are unique and attractive and would definitely be a "find" (here's me dreaming I'll happen upon some at a thrift store).

Your flower photos are gorgeous too; both the ones in your yard and the ones inside!

These are exciting! I can't wait to see you work your magic! I love your flower pictures. It inspired me to closer inspect a lady bug. Try to observe a little more than I usually do with things like that!
