Tie dye Reflection
The result of my team’s tie dye is satisfying although it doesn't go with the plan. I think the design needs to be more interesting and eye catching, something that is different. I would tie the cloth with the rubber band more tightly so the color doesn't go loose. I want to make it neater so the design can be seen. I followed only one design because of the loosed rubber band for the other designs.
Batik tie dye RESULT
I made the design of my batik mixed tie dye using the patterns of a bird and a mushroom. I wrote the word "Believe" on the middle. I waxed one of the Mushroom pattern and one of the Bird pattern. Since we want it to have color, we used another tool, that is painting it. After finishing waxing the patterns, I colored the other patterns with various paint colors. Since the waxed part will not have any color, I have to outline the pattern of the mushroom and the bird. I colored the word "Belive" with blue and some of the other letters with wax. For the background, I painted it with different eye-catching bright colors. I haven't get the final result of my batik tie dye, because it haven't got boiled yet, but obeserving from my latest result with the colors, I think I really need to improve my batik waxing, because it looks very messy.
The result of my batik tie-dye is very messy because of the wax drop. When I made the batik pattern with wax using the canting, I dropped some wax on some places of the fabric. When the fabric is dried, it is to be boiled in boiling water. When it is boiled the part of the wax and the dripping will be erased, so there are some parts that are filled with white dots. I should do better at holding and making the batik pattern with the wax.
