That's really something, Libby. The music is a bit much so I had to turn off the sound. I've made batik actually. Instead of the stamp (I have one of those.) with wax we painted the wax on with a paintbrush. I'll try to find what I made. It was a bit larger than a placemat. I think I made some other things too in a class years ago that my Mom and I took in Japan. It was a fun and interesting process.
