Blue Glue Batik Results

Jamie used the blue glue to outline the leaves of the huckleberry branch. She started with the rust fabric and once the glue dried, she applied a wash of green paint from the branch outward. She then painted the leaves specifically with a brighter green paint. When the glue was washed out and the piece dry, she thread painted the leaves and branch. The huckleberries are fused fabric.

Sue Anne's batik is the background harlequin print over which she stamped, glued and stitched. The blue glue was used to separate the diamonds and up close, one can see the white fabric between the two colors of paint.
