Introduction to Basic Batik

3 hours 42 min ago

Batik is a term used to describe the very old skill of using dyes and hot wax as a resist on paper or cloth to produce beautiful patterns and designs. It has been used in Indonesia, Africa, India and Japan. The wax is applied with a brush or a ‘janting’ (a special tool that holds hot wax, and enables us to draw or make marks with the wax). Successive layers of colour are used to build up the design producing exciting and original work.
