Gelatine printing and more soy wax

Top 2 pics are some of my gelatine prints - just quick ones because I needed to try out the process before I leave. I'm doing a workshop in this and the soy wax for one of my groups 3 days after I return.

The 2 next pics are soy wax painted with procion dyes. The advantage of using dyes is that you can layer the colours without changing the hand of the fabric. My dyes are old so the colours washed out a bit softer but not a bad result. I like the crackle effect in the sample below.
