Using a Tjanting

My third play date with the soy wax was using a tjanting. This is a special tool with a small bowl with a thin pointed tube that allows quite delicate lines to be made. Several years ago Tukde and I were filming how Shoppington's products were made and we searched out where I could get one of these. I have treasured them but never used them so I got them out and thought 'well here goes. I just tried free writing and a few symbols. You can see I need to practice a bit to be more consistent but overall I was very pleased with how it works. I would like to try a more organised design at some stage.
