A layer of melted wax is applied and the paper manipulated to create the distinctive crackled look of batik.  Paper is allowed to rest in a tub of water and then a dark wash is applied, and the image is further worked with watercolour techniques to create a truly unique piece.

Material Fee includes:

Half sheet of 140 lb Arches paper, brushes, paints, paper towels, newsprint, paraffin wax, iron

Learning Outcome: Learn the process of incorporating melted wax with watercolours, learn a simple method transferring any reference onto paper, learn various watercolour techniques.
