thanks for the elaborated and clear reply!
(I thought you used some kind of a 'drying delay' stuff to give you the time to work on blending the colours, or to take them only to where you want them to go). I'll definitely give it…"

"OK, dear, of course when it comes to one's own art - one knows best...:-)
I'm just over protective of mine, and I know from experience (especially with tactile art), that curious people (out of admiration), feel they 'must' touch…"

About me and my connection to fiber art & mixed media
originally a painter in oils and acrylic, for more than 35 years. in the last 5-7 years I fell in love and got hooked on all things textural: collages, assemblages, textile and distorted and manipulated fabrics, rust, handmade paper, steampunk, and all sorts of visual and textural effects and 'tricks'. everything is game now. still not having my own website though.

Thank you for the comments on my photo. I do love using the batik fabrics when designing my handbags. I do think about dying my own fabric but there is such a color variety of batiks already available. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I go in a fabric shop.
