Day 4 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

The  Unveiling! 

After a nice Sunday of church and lunch with friends,  it was time to pick up where I left off last night.  

As I wrote yesterday,  after the painting dries,  it gets totally coated with melted wax (plain white paraffin). Here's a closeup of what it looks like coated with wax:

Then let the ironing begin!   After ironing and changing the newspaper many times, all the wax is off, revealing the hidden gem under all that wax. 

Now here is your peek at batik - my finished painting:

Now the hardest part - what to paint tomorrow?  Hmmmmm!
