    > *****************
    > In a nutshell, it was a lesson using coffee filters...I mean huge, honkin'
    > 21" diameter coffee filters as the "cloth" and putting the wax in patterns
    > on it with a tjanting (sp?) tool. When dry, she painted it with dyes and a
    > brush and it looked like a big stained glass piece/batiked piece in the
    > round. I thought the coffee filter was a unique material to use. I tried it
    > when I got home and my school kids are excited about trying it in their
    > class at the mid. school level. I think I'll try it with my advanced group
    > first, though. Toodles......
