Hi Wendy, for batiks I just use white cotton muslin. I use a scrub brush to give the batiks a quick scrub to get the excess paint off, it's usually just the paint sitting on top of the glue. You do get a faded look, like a watercolour but I really like that look. :)

Mother's Day Block
In my current residency I have been working on these mixed media blocks for Mother's Day. We used Model Magic to add a nice 3D element to them. On my sample I wrapped the painting around the sides and back.  At school we only had time for the sides. Here is...
