Batik Max Medors

1) My color order is white, yellow, darker yellow, orange, darker orange, Darkest orange, red, darker red, purple, darker purple

2) The hardest part about the batik process was having colors planned because it is difficult to know what each color will look like.

3) I learned that it is important to understand the color wheel so you can predict what the batik will look like in the next step.

4) I wish that I would have had a better understanding of where to wax to purposefully enhance the focus point.

5) If I could do one thing differently with my batik it would be to go with cold colors because If it touches another batik it it typically easier to fix because the cold colors are darker.
