Ink and wax

Silk threaded with soft cotton; ironed on to freezer paper; text added with brush and japanese ink, waxed, more ink added, and then some blue dye that happened to be to hand.

Ironing out the wax, I noticed that the cotton left strong lines of wax, and rewaxed them (by running the side of a candle over hot, ironed fabric) to use elsewhere, on a bit of paper that's collecting the "leftovers" of ink -
