This was just a silly piece I made to get the design down on fabric. It's not technically good or anything but I have included it because it's colourful. I trailed wax (rather messily) on some calico, then coloured in the shapes using my favourite silk paints. I love silk paints so much they are very versatile and vibrant on all media. I lightly quilted the design with a piece of wadding and a calico backing and running stitch on the machine
