Fun with Napkin Rings

I was shopping for a D shaped napkin holder, which I never found....but I did find these two others, and one napkin holder (the yellow fabric). I see the world differently now. The first thing that comes to mind when I see ANY new object is....how can I dip that in hot wax?? And then quickly followed by, what color will I paint it? The last photo is with the wax still in and freshly painted with dye (mixed with print paste). Even with the print paste, I am still having issues with the dye running under the batik. I am painting on a glass surface. I think I need to try a stretcher frame.
