check out the newest Somerset Studio magazine and see my article entitled "Bisquick Batik Technique" (nov. 08)---- i hope you like it. (also see previous post may 17) when i first submitted the piece. magazine work is interesting - if you want to get your work in a chirstmas issue you must submit in may. the first year i did this, i was on the lookout in stores for christmas imagery to do my project. i learned that that wouldn't work, so now i have seasonal "stuff" for art around the studio yearlong.
