I am studying my books but I also would like to learn some techniques from the masters. Alla from Allaras was kind enough to share her tutorial with me on hot batik techniques. With her permission I will publish this tutorial on my blog during next week.Alla Samoil has been a professional artist for the past 20 years. Since her first try of silk painting and batik 15 years ago, these techniques became her passion. Her paintings, scarves, and ties are collected and sold internationally by individuals, galleries and businesses. You can also find her artwork at her Allaras Etsy shop.

Thoughts on batik
Batik is my new hobby this summer. Many years ago, when I had a vacation on the Canary Islands, they had a batik class for hotel guests. I stopped by a couple of times but never actually took the class. Since then I acquired a small collection of books on batik and some supplies like silk paints, silk scarves and so many things I don't even remember the names for it. So this summer I finally took the box with those out and I am going to give it a try.
