I took this picture while I was waiting for the wax to heat up, having painted the first colour. I’m using the silk paints on the paper rather than procion dyes as some of the mixed dyes separate and that’s no good for painting a sky. It’s only after they dry that this becomes obvious, and I didn’t want a green sky! The picture on the window ledge also had its first application of colour, and was soon ready for the first wax. The colours are very light to start, and the next ones will be more intense.
