Batik in Koh Lipe, Thailand

Whilst I was in Thailand last year, I had a chance to create a piece of batik.

Batik is a cloth that is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique, and something I have tried before. But this was in 35 degree temperature, outside... and I was pretty chuffed with the outcome.

Here's a few pictures showing what I got up to...
