Watercolor Batik is the process of using hot wax as a resist. If you have ever used masking fluid, the wax is used for the same purpose to preserve the painting layers. We'll work from light to dark, preserving each layer with wax. At the end of the process, the entire painting will have a layer of wax and you will iron off the wax between newspapers to reveal the finished product.
Supplies Instructor provides: the electric skillets with the paraffin wax, brushes for waxing, Giniwashi rice paper, iron and newspaper.
