better than I'd expected

These turned out much softer than I was thinking they would with the microwave probably having heated the fabric enough to melt the wax to some degree, but I'm pleased with the more muted effect.  Somehow the pale pastel batiked bits may have been too stark, where as now they are quite subtle and just enough to give some interest to the surface.

After a good rinse in tepid water I chucked the lot in the washing machine on 95 degrees, the hottest the machine will go, and wonderfully all the wax washed right out with out a trace, so non of that nasty ironing with brown paper business (grins).
Now to what style, hmm...
