It's 'doo deciding where to spend the day chilling.
It's going to be another blazing day today so I decided to take advantage of getting up with the chickens (who work in construction and leave while it's still dark) and seize on the dreams of archipelagos that filled my night.
I've been wearing earplugs in an effort to quell tinnitus and I think my brain hears the sound of my own heartbeat and blood rushing and thinks it's the surf breaking somewhere close by.
I'm starting with hot soy wax..the cloth is not presoaked with soda ash so some areas will take the dye less fiercely than others where I've mixed dye and SA, something I rarely do.
There are two owls out there in the trees and I swear they are singing "Who are you, who who, who who?"
dye+soda ash applied directly to the cloth and wax. those discs are rounds of clear glass intended to act as a resist to the next step but I have my doubts. I should have stuck them down with more was but I ran out.
Cleanup is going to be hell but I'm just going to let this one dry completely before I even try to move it. There are three more panels all about 5'x5' - but I've got the whole weekend ahead to expand on this path.
