Batik wax and a stencil

My second "play with the melted soy wax was using a stencil. I was a bit nervous about this as I didn't want to damage my stencil but it seemed to work fine and the stencil cleaned up OK afterwards. I just hope it hasn't changed the ability to use the stencil as a stencil. The wax did soak into the fabric a little but the wax impression is clearly visible . Again I applied with an old brush. After using the brush with wax it isn't much good for anything else so don't use a good brush
