The cold weather and short days keepme cozy in my Billings, Montana, studio, and winter is unquestionably my mostproductive season for studio work. There does come a point, however, when cabinfever sets in and I start yearning for a major color fix. When this kind of restlessnesspervades, I treat myself to an emotional boost with a “Color Therapy” session—byinfusing white fabric with color.Easy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m3 Interweave

easy resist fabric dyeingbatik and surface designWorkingwith gluegel1. You will need to work on awaterproof, horizontal worksurface, so cover your surfacewith plastic sheeting or anotherprotective layer.2. Tear or cut fabric pieces to fitwithin your work area withoutany overhang.3. Smooth the fabric and tape thecorners in place so it won’t shiftduring surface applications.4. If desired, lightly pencil designlines onto your fabric. I tend towork loosely from a notebooksketch or my imagination, soI tend to mark only my bordermargins or basic proportionswith pencil.5. Apply the glue gel to the fabric,using the bottle nozzle todraw your design. Hold the bottleslightly above the fabric and allowthe glue to flow gently onto thefabric surface while you move thebottle along. Try to keep your linesthin by applying even pressure tothe bottle. But don’t worry aboutirregularities in your lines. Thesejust add to the whimsical effect.Remember, a wavy line is morevisually appealing than a perfectlystraight one.Tip: You may want to practice drawingwith the glue bottle before you apply itto your fabric. Before you begin, hold theglue bottle upside down for a minute orso, allowing all the liquid to collect atthe top to prevent air bubbles.“Color City” 20" 21" Glue gel resist on cotton, fabric paint, organic cotton batting, machinequilted.taking itfurther Use a fabric marker in a contrasting or complementary color, or black, to fill in thewhite lines. This approach was used for “Pop Art Roses.” Add another layer of texture and surface design with screen printing. This approachwas used for “Ancient Echoes.” I screen printed using my photos of petroglyphs priorto removing the resist. Add another layer of texture and color with paint using printing blocks or hand-cutrubber stamps, as I did for “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” For this piece, the printing wasdone prior to removing the resist in order to preserve the white lines. However,printing after the resist is removed could create an interesting design element. Layer with batting and backing, as desired. Machine quilt on both sides of the whitelines, echoing the lines for emphasis. This approach was used for “Village Green” and“Color City,” using black thread. Embellish with big stitch embroidery in decorative stitches. Add buttons, beads, or other embellishments to create drama as I did for “Don’tWorry, Be Happy.”Easy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m7 Interweave

easy resist fabric dyeingNote: The glue will spread slightly afterapplication. It should penetrate throughthe fabric to the other side to be effectiveas a resist.6. Leave the fabric flat until the gluehas set. The glue will start to setup in 1 hour and can be gentlypainted at that point, or hungto dry if you need to clear yourworkspace. I prefer to leave mywork flat overnight, allowing theglue to dry completely.Paintingthe fabricYou may apply fabric paint as desired.Here are two methods I use.To achieve color blending as in “ColorCity” and “Ancient Echoes,” lightlyspray your fabric with water until it’sslightly damp and then apply dilutedpaint (1:1 paint and water) in colorblocks with a chip brush.Tip: When color blending is the goal,consider the color wheel; try to avoidpainting complementary colors sideby side or you will end up with brownwhere they meet and blend. For example,orange will be created where red andyellow merge, etc.batik and surface designTo achieve distinct color separation asin “Village Green,” use a firm bristle,flat brush and apply the paint directlyfrom the bottle without diluting it. Toprevent colors from running togetheracross the resist lines, it is best toallow drying time between colors,which makes for slower progress onmulti-colored pieces. Opaque paintswork best for this application becausethey will cover any bleed through.Removingthe resist1. After the paint is set, soften theglue resist by soaking your fabricin warm water for 15 minutes.Make sure it is fully immersed.2. Immediately follow the soak witha long, gentle cycle in the washingmachine in plenty of warm waterand a bit of regular laundrydetergent.Settingthe paint3. Allow your painted fabric to airdry. Friction from the tossingmotion in a clothes dryer mayabrade the paint on the surface ofthe fabric, resulting in a slightlyfaded appearance.When the fabric paint is dry, cure orheat set it prior to removing the resist.To Heat Set: Iron for 5 minutes usinghigh heat or toss the fabric in thedryer at a high temperature setting for10 minutes. I have never had problemswith build up or any kind of residueon my iron as long as the fabric paintand glue are fully dry; however, youmay wish to use a pressing cloth.cynthia-stcharles.blogspot.comTo Cure: An alternative to heat settingis a two-week slow cure—just set thepainted fabric aside for a period of twoweeks. This provides enough time forthe paint to fully cure and bond withthe fabric.Easy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m8 Interweave

easy resist fabric dyeingbatik and surface designresists kitchenAdapted fromQuilting Arts MagazineJune/July 2011from theingredient 4: corn syrupIn this fourth installment of my series on using resists from thekitchen, I turn to something sweet—corn syrup. I came upon cornsyrup while looking for a substitute for sodium alginate. Sodium alginate,a product derived from seaweed, makes a thick syrupy liquid that workswell as a resist. I’ve found that corn syrup is an inexpensive, readilyavailable alternative to sodium alginate that yields pleasing results.As a resist, corn syrup is very versatile.You can drip it on fabric, apply it withstamps, and even stencil with it. Itdissolves easily, creating a wonderfulethereal effect. You can add color(paint or dye) to the design with avariety of tools once the corn syruphas been allowed to dry, and you caneven apply color while the corn syrupis still damp. The dye or paint mingleswith the syrup to create interestingpatterns and textures.DirectionsA pplythe cornsyrup1. Wash your fabric in hot waterwith 1/2 teaspoon of synthrapoland 1/2 teaspoon of soda ash (thesequantities are appropriate for aload with 3–4 yards of fabric).This step is important because anysizing on the fabric can interferewith the paint’s ability to bond tothe fabric.2. Cover your work surface with aplastic drop cloth or an old sheet.Place the fabric on the worksurface and pin it every 8"–10".3. Use the corn syrup straight outof the bottle and apply it to yourfabric with the tool of your choice.See Tools for Applying the Resistfor suggestions.Corn syrup applied with a roundwindow chamois.byL isa K erpoeEasy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m9 Interweave

Anotheroption is to skip thisstep and move directly to the nextsection (see Add Color).Tip: Leave the cloth flat to dry. If youmove it, take care not to let it touchitself. The corn syrup is very sticky!A ddcolorThe resist will remain slightly sticky,even after 24 hours. This is not aproblem; you can still paint on top ofit. Color can be applied with fabricpaint or with dye. The followingdirections are for fabric paint. (If youprefer to work with dye, completedirections can be found in myprevious article, “Resists From theKitchen Part 3: Rice Baby Cereal,” inthe April/May 2011 issue of QuiltingArts Magazine .1. Cover your work surface withan old sheet or cloth. Place theresist-covered fabric on your worksurface and pin it alongthe edges, every 8"–10".2. Brush the paint onto thefabric with a 2" bristlebrush. Allow it to dry. Ifyou are applying the paintwhile the corn syrup is wet,use eyedroppers or pipettesto prevent the resist fromsmearing.Tip: You can use any type of textilepaint for this technique. I like to usea thin paint, such as Pe–be–o Setasilkor Jacquard Dye-na-Flow. Thin paintbreaks down the resist more quickly andcontributes to the soft ghostly effect.3. The textile paint should be setbefore the fabric is washed. Eventhough heat-setting is the mostcommon way to set textile paint,it is not compatible with the cornsyrup resist—it just makes a stickyEasy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface Designmess!Instead, usea passive setting method (mosttextile paint manufacturers includeinstructions for this). Passivesetting means that the fabric isallowed to sit for a specific periodof time, usually 7–14 days, beforewashing. If you are eager to seethe results and can’t wait for 7–14days, no harm is done. But keep inmind that some of the paint willwash out, resulting in softer colors.Q u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m10 Interweave

Once the paint has set, soak thecloth in warm water for 10–15minutes. The corn syrup dissolveseasily and usually requires no extrascrubbing.2. Wash your fabric in warm or coldwater on the gentle cycle. Drythe fabric in the dryer or on aclothesline.lisakerpoe.comtools forapplying the resistThe consistency of corn syrup lends itself to myriad application techniques.Below are just a few ideas you can try. As you experiment with corn syrup, youare sure to think of many more ways to use it!Sponge: Use a sponge to make a stamp. You can cut it into the desired shape withscissors. Or try compressed sponges. They are thin and easy to cut with scissors or acraft knife. They expand to a normal size once they get wet.Stencil: Use a brush or cosmetic sponge to apply the syrupthrough a stencil. The syrup is thick enough that you can get nice,clean edges.Squeeze bottle: Squeeze bottles come with a variety oftip sizes. They are great for creating free-form designs or detaileddrawings. Add about 1 teaspoon of water to 1 4 cup of syrup whenapplying it with a squeeze bottle. Without the water, it tends to beadup on the cloth surface.Monoprint: Apply corn syrup to a sheet of heavy plasticor Plexiglas and create a pattern. Then place the plastic on thefabric and press down.Easy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m11 Interweave

easy resist fabric dyeingbatikbatik and surface designwithsoy waxeasy & effective techniquesfor original fabric designbyM elanie T estaAfew years ago, a good friend looked at me and asked, “Whyaren’t you using soy wax?” I looked right back at her andsaid, “Why should I be using it?” She went on to extol thevirtues of this material, and stared at me like I was totallymissing the boat. Well, she was right. I am now aconvert and I hope you will be too.Soy wax is a powerhouse of a resist.It is a food grade, environmentallysafe alternative to paraffin. No specialchemicals are required to remove itfrom your cloth; in fact, the wax can beremoved by simply running it under hotwater—its melt temperature is so lowthat it will not affect your plumbing.These few facts mean that workingwith soy wax takes almost all of theguesswork out of the batik process.Using soy wax with paint simplifies thetechnique even more.DesignCreating cloth with dynamism andverve is super easy if you are willing toembrace a few simple compositionalideas.Adapted fromQuilting Arts MagazineJune/July 2010Easy Resist Fabric Dyeing Techniques for Batik and Surface DesignQ u i lt i n g A r t s . c o m12 Interweave

easy resist fabric dyeingC olorconsiderationsUnderstanding color can be tricky forthe beginning surface design artist.For this reason, I suggest workingwithin an analogous color range; takea wedge of three neighboring colorsfrom the color wheel, and work withjust these three colors. Once you feelcomfortable with this approach, allowyourself to add a tad of a color thatis opposite that wedge (for example,if you work with yellow, orange, andred, the opposite color on the colorwheel will be somewhere in the blueand purple range).White—in our case, the color of theplain cloth we’re starting with—carries a great deal of weight in adesign. Using white sparingly is veryimportant when making vivaciouscloth, since it creates the elementsthat will pop within the composition.Each piece of cloth you create shouldhave some pop, but not to the point ofdistraction.L ayeringUsing soy wax as a resist meansthat you have the opportunity totrap previous layers of color whilecontinuing to build and expand upona color concept. There is excitementin this idea, and a chance to draw outyour design.batik and surface designA good illustration
