"Poppylicious" acrylic poppy floral faux batik © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Poppylicious
I know it's a silly title, but I like it.  I've done so many poppy paintings, I'm getting a little desperate for titles.

I had a student last week who wanted to learn faux batik, the process where we use wax as a resist.  After cracking the wax, color is reapplied to the painting, but it only goes in where the wax is cracked.  This gives an unpredictable lace-like filigree to the painting.
