So it's Soy?

Some of the soy wax pieces from the recent 2nd Annual SAQA Maine Event this past weekend. 
Beth Berman, the new regional rep, presented this workshop.

 This one reverses to a different color.

I have just been experiencing soy printing inks by Akua...they are fab and easy clean up and no toxic fumes. These soy way fabrics are fabulous...thank you for sharing with those of us who might not be able to attend in Maine. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Soy wax is easier than the tradtional kind.
I've use the Akua inks for printmaking but didn't know they were suitable for fabrics?

I found you through Seth Apter's blog. As a lover of both fabric and paper, I confess I am head over heels in LOVE with your art, your quilts, your web site, your blog, and the SAQA link you provided.

I've been doing soy wax printing, but on felt. Is there a better way to lift the wax out again? These are mostly textile collages, so not critical to lift 100% of the stiff wax, but if I choose to use soy wax as a resist on felt scarves....any ideas?

Beth Berman suggests ironing between newsprint and placing in hot water to loosen any remaining soy wax.
The wax floats to surface and you can just toss it outside as it is biodegradable.
