soy wax batik DVD giveaway! :)


I love soy wax batik. I mean, love it. I haven't been doing a lot of it lately and it was on my mind that I wanted to pull out the pots and wax again when Susan Purney Mark announced that her new DVD on the subject had just come out:



It took me about a nano second to order it.

I've long been a fan of Susan's work, she has an incredible eye for color and I'm excited to be able to learn more about this technique from her. (Isn't it great how all you have to do is order something online and then it shows up in the mailbox and you become so much smarter? I love it, the world is so accessible now.)

Here's a preview of what's on the DVD:

Soy Wax Inspirations • Susan Purney Mark - Movie Trailer from Andrew Galli on Vimeo.

It. Is. Awesome.

And Susan very kindly sent me an extra copy to give away on the blog! So you've got a chance to win this incredible workshop for free!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and on Monday May 6 I'll announce the winner. Happy commenting! :)

Julie said...

Need to update my batik technique and this sounds like a good way to do so. Would love to have this DVD.

Anita M said...

What fun! I have played a bit with soy wax, but she really makes it look accessible as well as beautiful.

Kathy said...

I have not had much success with soy wax, thought I love the idea of it. Perhaps a little instruction from this DVD would be good for me!!!

Vicki W said...

I have done soy wax batik a few times so I know I could benefit from Susan DVD. Thanks for the opportunity.

Michelle Berkey said...

Sandy Curran said...

I took a class from Cozy Bendosky I'm not sure that is the correct spelling, over 10 years ago and have never forgotten it. She taught some, not all, of the techniques on this dvd and I have wanted ever since to get another class like that. Having a dvd, so I could not forget how to accomplish the techniques, would be even better. I have been afraid to try regular wax batik, but this sounds so much more friendly. You don't mention the cost of the dvd. Perhaps those of us who do not win it could buy it ourselves.

Thanks,
Sandy

gail said...

Funny how things just pop up possibly giving you a direction. Just last night I was thinking about wanting to purchase some soy wax flakes to experiment with batik and the first blog I see this morning is yours with this post. Please throw my hat in the ring and I'll squinch my eyes real tight and wish hard...because Sunday is my birthday. hint hint lol
A great giveaway!
