This is the paper design for the wall hanging. I decided to paint and batik the background using used silk paint and salt for the leaves and flowers, then wax resist in three stages, green, blue and cracked wax with grey. It worked quite well. I made a sample for the flowers in the foreground. A suffolk puff with two blue layers and a plain yellow centre. I decided to add a plain dyed inner border to match the suffolk puffs and a bright yellow outer border. The background was to be hand quilted and tied.
