Faux batik floral painting, "Golden Poppies" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson

"Golden Poppies" 8x8 faux batik by Carol Nelson

This painting is an example of my "faux batik" process in which the painting is covered with wax, then flooded with a darker color. The dark color seeps into the cracks in the wax and leaves a random pattern. It's a very interesting and unpredictable effect.

My previous post showed the faux batik look on rice paper. This one is painted on 100% cotton fabric. I found that cotton needs to be primed before painting with either gesso or polymer medium.

The painting then may be glued to a wood, canvas, or paper surface. This one is glued to 140 lb watercolor paper and matted.
