    Just wondering...

    Once upon a time, someone said that it was "a nice shade of yellow"... and more recently someone said that it was red.

    What have you found to be the hardest color of batik to locate?

    I am having trouble finding really light colors to use for strong contrast.

    I agree that light pastel colors are very hard to find. Reds and yellows would be next hardest to find as well.

    Light colors in general, mediums and darks are very easy to find just about everywhere :D:D:D

    Pastels and a black that isn't "just black" . Like something with good mottling/marbling
