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...
|Drawing the design, from scratch!|
|Waxing the outline|
|Final background colouring|
|The finished piece :)|
