I am always pleased with the way Dharma handles the orders. Dharma reps are extremely pleasant and helpful in answering any queries one might have for any product. I love to deal with Dharma. Have watched the DVD but not used the soy wax flakes or the ink jet transfer paper as yet.

Excellent introduction to using wax resist tools fabric and dyes. Susan Purney Mark illustrates several techniques and shares tips from her own experiences using soy wax. Video is easy to follow with chapters separated and marked for easy navigation. Close ups and split screens happened just as I was thinking I'd like to see more detail. I liked that she gave an emphasis to safety in using chemicals and heating appliances. While she described the benefits of soy wax early on it took a few chapters to get a comparison of how soy and "regular" wax could be used. It's all there just not quite where I expected. I'm sure I'll re-watch sections of this video when I need to be re-inspired to try new techniques and when I'm looking for the courage to try something new in my work. Nicely done!

There are some great ideas presented and some that didn't make the cut for discussion but were hanging on the walls. I'd actually love a series of videos that allowed advanced discussion of each technique (including the ones on the walls....). Also it would be great if teachers could vary their demonstrations with different designs rather than repeating the designs they most like (e.g. circles). It would be good for them as well as the viewer. If they make "mistakes" during the design we get to see how they work with it which is very instructive.
