Batik Auggie Howe


My color order went from white to a darker red. I was using the white.Then i used a light yellow following i used a darker yellow then i started to make an orange color then i made it red and then made it darker.

The hardest part was the patience because it took so long to complete and i just wanted to be done with it.also the part where we had to pick warm or cool was difficult because they both seemed likes good colors.

I learned from color mixing that you have be careful of how much of each color you need to put in or else it will end up a color you do not want.Also you have to make sure your making the right colors.

I wish I knew how to mix colors better because my background color ended up as a weird gray color and i wanted a better background color. i also wish i knew how to make better designs with the wax.

If i did it over again i would do cool colors to see what that looks like. i would also do more designs on it.

I wish
