Woo! The final boiling process is done, and now I can submit my Batik for a grade. I’m not completely happy with how it turned out, but it’s my first one so I guess I shouldn’t be so picky. (if you’ve not seen the first part of this process and want to, click here )

While is was boiling, I was happy because the color was still dark
It ended up much lighter than I expected

I was hoping for a really rich, dark navy tone. I added peacock blue and a lot of black to the normal blue dyes, and it somehow ended up this light color. 😦

The lines are far from perfect

 But I’m really pleased with the brushstrokes and the scarf part. woo!
